UPIANA Classification Scheme

"The UPIANA Classification Schedule forms part of a set of three special classification schedules developed by the Cataloging and Metadata Services Section of the University of the Philippines Diliman University Library. It was designed to meet an urgent need in the classification of its various special collections. While the University Library has chosen to adopt the United States Library of Congress Classification Schedules (LCC), catalogers have found it to be inadequate in handling most of the Filipiniana materials.

Historical International Standard Classification of Occupations

"Starting in the 1950s the International Labour Office has developed an International Standard Classification of Occupations (isco) allowing classification of occupational activities worldwide. Naturally, this system is not intended to deal with historical information. In recent years, a group of historians and sociologists have started to build upon the 1968 version of isco to create a classification scheme for occupational titles in the 19th and early 20th centuries, called hisco (...).

Schweizerische Operationsklassifikation

"Im Rahmen der Medizinischen Statistik werden jährlich in allen Krankenhäusern und Kliniken der Schweiz sämtliche stationäre Spitalaufenthalte erfasst. Die Erhebung umfasst unter anderem die Diagnosen und Behandlungen jeder Patientin und jedes Patienten. Um diese Informationen weiterverarbeiten zu können, werden sie kodiert. Dazu werden zwei medizinische Klassifikationen verwendet: die ICD-10-GM für die Diagnosen und die CHOP für die Behandlungen. Die Kodierung der Diagnosen und Behandlungen unterliegt präzisen Richtlinien.

Wessex Classification Scheme

"The Wessex Classification Scheme is a revision of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) schedules incorporating current UK medical and health practice. The scheme was originally created by the librarians of the Wessex Regional Library and Information Network (WRLIN) and is now overseen by a working group of the SWIMS Network and other users of the scheme."
