Billings Classification

"The Billings Classification is a subject classification developed by John Shaw Billings in 1899. It was not an abstract experiment in the mapping of human knowledge, but rather a system devised specifically for the optimum arrangement of the Library’s collections. Dr. Billings envisioned a layout for the building, and while his classification scheme was in fact a division of human intellectual achievement into various subject areas designated by letter codes varying in number (usually three), it was fashioned in such a way as to maximize access to the unique holdings of the Library.

Cutter Expansive Classification

"Charles Ammi Cutter (1837–1903), inspired by the decimal classification of his contemporary Melvil Dewey, originally developed his own classification scheme for the collections of the Boston Athenaeum, at which he served as librarian for two dozen years. He began work on it about 1880 and published the first schedules in the early 1890s. His five-volume catalogue of the Athenaeum collection is a classic in bibliographic history.

Decimal System for Classifying Data Pertaining to the Petroleum Industry

"The 'Decimal Classification' was first printed by the National Petroleum Publishing Company, publishers of National Petroleum News, in 1928. A second edition appeared in serial form in The Petroleum Engineer in 1938 and was later reprinted in booklet form. During the intervening years since it was first available, many persons apparently have found this system useful in meeting their filing problems. Articles printed in The Petroleum Engineer have for many years been numbered in accordance with this decimal classification to facilitate orderly clipping and filing.

Emporio Celestial de Conocimientos Benévolos

"El Emporio celestial de conocimientos benévolos es una cierta enciclopedia china ficcionada por el escritor argentino Jorge Luis Borges en el ensayo El idioma analítico de John Wilkins. (...) Dice Borges en dicho relato: '(...) notoriamente no hay clasificación del universo que no sea arbitraria y conjetural. La razón es muy simple: no sabemos qué cosa es el universo'. (...) Esta lista, cuyo 'descubrimiento' Borges atribuye a Franz Kuhn, ha originado una multiplicidad de comentarios filosóficos y literarios, como el inicio del prefacio de Las palabras y las cosas, de Michel Foucault.

IUPAC Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry

"The purpose of this manual is to improve the exchange of scientific information among the readers in different disciplines and across different nations. As the volume of scientific literature expands, each discipline has a tendency to retreat into its own jargon. This book attempts to provide a readable compilation of widely used terms and symbols from many sources together with brief understandable definitions. This Third Edition reflects the experience of the contributors with the previous editions and we are grateful for the many thoughtful comments we have received.

IUPAC Compendium of Analytical Nomenclature

"The index of this edition contains ca 6,000 entries. The cross-references may help the readers to find the correct terms which they are looking for. (...) It is expected that the readers who are interested in IUPAC recommendations concerning analytical terms and definitions will be able to find them quickly and easily in the Compendium. In the text of the Compendium there are, occasionally, contradicting definitions which result from the fact that the experts of different fields - while trying to do their best-hold different views on certain key issues.
