IWRF Functional Classification System

"Wheelchair Rugby, with roots in wheelchair basketball and ice hockey, began in Canada in the 1970s as a counterpart to wheelchair basketball for persons with tetraplegia or tetra-equivalent function. The first classification system was medically based and there were three classes, largely determined by medical diagnosis and level of spinal cord injury. In 1991, the system was changed to a functional classification system unique to the sport of wheelchair rugby.

Multilingual Dictionary of Cataloguing Terms and Concepts

"The Multilingual dictionary of cataloguing terms and concepts contains definitions for many terms and concepts used by the library cataloguing community. Terms and definitions are available in English and a variety of other languages.
The MulDiCat project was begun by Monika Muennich in 1998 for IFLA's Cataloguing Section. It was stored in a proprietary database developed by Bernard Eversberg in 2003. It has now re-emerged in part as a Word table and as a SKOS file on the new IFLA Namespace.

Global Agricultural Concept Scheme

"GACS explored the possibility of creating a global repository of concepts and terminology in the area of agriculture. This first beta is the result of the first experimental attempt, and it went very well! We now have a pool of concepts based on a mapping between AGROVOC, the CAB Thesaurus and the NAL Thesaurus. An analysis of the the coverage of GACS beta with respect to AGROVOC showed that it could already be used to index AGRIS, with no significant loss of indexing concepts."

Clinical Care Classification System

"The Clinical Care Classification (CCC) System (...) provides a standardized framework and a unique coding structure for assessing, documenting, and classifying patient care by nurses and other clinical professionals in any health care setting. The CCC system consists of two interrelated terminologies: CCC of Nursing Diagnoses consists of 176 (60 major & 116 subcategories). CCC of Nursing Interventions/Actions consists of 804 Concepts (201 Core Interventions [77 major & 124 subcategories)].

Glossary of Literary Terms

"This book defines and discusses terms, critical theories, and points of view that are commonly used to classify, analyze, interpret, and write the history of works of literature. The individual entries, together with the guides to further reading included in most of them, are oriented especially toward undergraduate students of English, American, and other literatures. Over the decades, however, they have proved to be a useful work of reference also for advanced students, as well as for the general reader with literary interests."

Nursing Outcomes Classification

"The Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) is a comprehensive, standardized classification of patient/client outcomes developed to evaluate the effects of interventions provided by nurses or other health care professionals. Standardized outcomes are essential for documentation in electronic records, for use in clinical information systems, for the development of nursing knowledge and the education of professional nurses. An outcome is a measurable individual, family, or community state, behavior or perception that is measured along a continuum and is responsive to nursing interventions.

Nursing Interventions Classification

"The Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) is a comprehensive, research-based, standardized classification of interventions that nurses perform. It is useful for clinical documentation, communication of care across settings, integration of data across systems and settings, effectiveness research, productivity measurement, competency evaluation, reimbursement, and curricular design. The Classification includes the interventions that nurses do on behalf of patients, both independent and collaborative interventions, both direct and indirect care.
