Glossary of Terms Relating to Thesauri and Other Forms of Structured Vocabulary for Information Retrieval

"Confusion often arises when different people use terms to mean different things. In drawing up the following list I am grateful for suggestions and comments from three consultant colleagues who specialise in the development and use of thesauri and other forms of structured vocabulary for information retrieval: Stella Dextre Clarke, Alan Gilchrist and Ron Davies.

Le voci in italiano sono scritte in tondo, mentre i loro equivalenti inglesi in corsivo. L'illustrazione dei termini ha soprattutto uno scopo esplicativo e non pretende di costituire una definizione perfetta ed esaustiva."

Colon Classification

"Colon classification (CC) is a system of library classification developed by S. R. Ranganathan. It was the first ever faceted (or analytico-synthetic) classification. The first edition was published in 1933. Since then six more editions have been published. It is especially used in libraries in India. Its name 'colon classification' comes from the use of colons to separate facets in class numbers. However, many other classification schemes, some of which are completely unrelated, also use colons and other punctuation in various functions.
