Is the quality of subject access significantly better with the online catalog than with the card catalogs? For many years, librarians have been discontent with the quality of subject access in card catalogs, and they hoped that the online catalog would offer significant improvements. This new book addresses this question from five different perspectives--research studies, opinion pieces from public and technical services librarians, special needs, the international perspective, and a comprehensive annotated bibliography of previous work. By exploring the progress of the online catalog to date and making suggestions for future research, the contributors to Subject Control in Online Catalogs provide important reading for public services and technical services librarians, as well as systems librarians. In one this single volume, you will find research studies promising new paths for systems developments, descriptions of international developments that have vital implications for American subject access, and the valuable perspectives of innovative public and technical services librarians.

Relationships in the Organization of Knowledge

Author: A. Bean,R. Green

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 9780792368137

With a goal of improving retrieval in bibliographic environments, this volume takes stock of what we know about relationships in the overall bibliographic domain, with particular emphasis on relationships between subjects, relationships among bibliographic entities, and relationships between subject content and user needs. The volume presents the current state of the art in examining the expression of relationships in some of the best thesauri and classification schemes in use throughout the world. It also looks to the future by providing guidance for relational tasks now taking on greater significance, as retrieval systems increasingly operate in automated modes and as retrieval systems cross linguistic, cultural, and disciplinary boundaries. By bringing together in one place the perspectives of some of the most prominent persons working in this arena, this volume should be of interest to researchers from library and information science, as well as computer science (artificial intelligence, knowledge representation, information retrieval, natural language processing), and to many practitioners, including: developers of thesauri and classification schemes; developers of Web search engines and search directories; indexers and subject cataloguers; and professional searchers.
