Configuration Taxonomy

"The following represents a linear or flat taxonomy of key Configuration Types or Categorizations that are used by Information Technology (IT) organizations and professionals to help define, structure, organize, and understand various forms of Data, Information, and Knowledge that are specifically associated with 'Configurations' and Configuration Management. Such information is often used as a foundation for work that needs to be performed as well as data modeling, especially in the design, definition, and implementation of other Taxonomies and Ontologies.


"WordNet® is a large lexical database of English. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser. WordNet is also freely and publicly available for download. WordNet's structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.

A Classification System and Manual for Placement Office Libraries

"A classification scheme is given for materials related to occupational and educational opportunities collected by the Rutgers College Placement Office Library. The scheme assigns a four digit number to each item. The first digit designates which of the library's general areas the material covers: general, occupational, educational, or one of the special areas to be designated in the future. The second and third digits broadly and then more specifically define the educational areas dealt with or assumed as the background for the occupation covered.

Dana Classification

The Dana classification, assigns a four-part number to a mineral species. First is its class, based on important compositional groups; next, the type gives the ratio of cations to anions in the mineral; finally, the last two numbers group minerals by structural similarity with a given type or class."

Sears List of Subject Headings

"Since the first edition in 1923, the Sears List has served the unique needs of small and medium-sized libraries, suggesting headings appropriate for use in their catalogs and providing patterns and instructions for adding new headings as they are required. The successive editors of the List have faced the need to accommodate change while maintaining a sound continuity.

Weine Classification Scheme and Relative Index for Judaica Libraries

"The lack of a satisfactory classification scheme for the average Jewish library has long been a problem to the Jewish librarian. Many solutions have been suggested and attempted, with varying degrees of success. The classification scheme of the Library of Congress, which has now been adopted by most of the great scholarly Jewish libraries of the country, suffers from the drawbacks of being unknown to most of the general public.
