Bibliographisches System der gesammten Wissenschaftskunde

"Ich übergebe der gelehrten Welt nachstehendes Werk ungeachtet seiner von mir selbst wohl am wenigsten verkannten Mängel dennoch mit der Zuversicht dass es einem von Vielen gefühlten Bedürfnisse entsprechen und auch wohl grossentheils abhelfen werde. Meiner Absict nach ist es, was schon der Titel nachweist, nicht bloss für Bibliothecare bestimmt, da darauf gleichfalls die Anordnung verschiedenartiger Papiere gegründet werden kann, wie z.B.

"The BC consists of 14 main topics which are arranged in 25 main classes. This is achieved by dividing some topics, such as History and Literature, into a number of main classes. (...) The BC uses an alphanumeric system of notation which, as Schleiermacher himself pointed out, is a system that was well known in Europe before 1800. Frederik Rostgaard (...) used letters of the roman alphabet to identify main classes, and long before Rostgaard the system had been used in medieval cloister libraries.


한국십진분류법(韓國十進分類法, KDC: Korean Decimal Classification)은 대한민국의 대표적인 도서분류체계이다. 듀이십진분류법(DDC: Dewey Universal Decimal Classification)을 비롯한 서구의 분류법을 바탕으로 한국도서관협회 분류위원회에서 간행하고 있으며, 한국의 정보환경에 맞도록 주류의 배열이나 조기표의 추가, 본표 항목의 조정이 이루어졌다.

KDC는 DDC와 유사하게 모든 지식 분야를 총류(0), 철학(1), 종교(2), 사회과학(3), 자연과학(4), 기술과학(5), 예술(6), 언어(7), 문학(8), 역사(9)와 같이 10개의 주류(主類: section)로 1차적으로 구분한 다음, 각 주류를 다시 10개로 나누어 강목(綱目:division)으로 구분한다. 이 중 총류에는 여러 주제를 포괄하거나 특정 주제로 분류하기 어려운 것들이 속하며, 백과사전, 사전(辭典), 전집, 총서 등이 여기에 분류된다.

"The Korean decimal classification (KDC) is a system of library classification used in South Korea. The main classes are the same as in the Dewey Decimal Classification but these are in a different order: Natural sciences 400; Technology and engineering 500; Arts 600; Language 700."

Roget's Thesaurus

"Roget's Thesaurus is composed of six primary classes. (...) Each class is composed of multiple divisions and then sections. This may be conceptualized as a tree containing over a thousand branches for individual 'meaning clusters' or semantically linked words. Although these words are not strictly synonyms, they can be viewed as colours or connotations of a meaning or as a spectrum of a concept. One of the most general words is chosen to typify the spectrum as its headword, which labels the whole group.

PLOS Subject Area Thesaurus

"The 'Subject Areas' panel on each article page displays a set of terms selected for that article based on its content. The Subject Areas belong to a thesaurus of over 10,000 terms initially built for us over the course of 2012 by Access Innovations, taking into account the controlled vocabulary of classification terms that had been in use in PLOS Editorial Manager. The entire corpus of PLOS articles was analysed to ensure that the thesaurus covers the research domain comprehensively.

Código de Classificação de Documentos de Arquivo da Fundação Oswaldo Cruz

"O código de classificação de documentos de arquivo é um instrumento de trabalho utilizado para classificar todo e qualquer documento produzido ou recebido por um órgão no exercício de suas funções e atividades.

"The document classification code is a working tool used to classify any document produced or received by an organ in the exercise of its functions and activities.


"Thema is intended for use by all parts of the book trade: unlike other book trade subject classifications, it aims to be globally applicable. And in contrast to various library classifications that are used internationally, it is tailored for commercial use within the trade. It is a flexible standard that allows each market to retain its unique cultural voice while still presenting a unified subject hierarchy that rationalises book classification.

Schema voor de Indeling van de Systematische Catalogus in Openbare Bibliotheken

"SISO is een numeriek systeem dat de informatieve media in uw bibliotheek naar onderwerp indeelt. SISO is de basis voor de systematische catalogus en wordt gebruikt als plaatsingssyteem. Zo maakt SISO uw bibliotheekcollectie toegankelijk en vinden uw bezoekers makkelijk de weg in uw bibliotheek. SISO is gebaseerd op een logische en universele indeling van de wetenschappen. Alle wetenschappen zijn verdeeld in nummers en hiërarchisch geordend. Hoofdrubrieken worden onderverdeeld in onderrubrieken, deelrubrieken, kleine rubrieken en bijrubrieken.

Facet Analytical Theory in Managing Knowledge Structure for Humanities

"FATHUM is a faceted classification designed to accommodate the humanities and was developed for the FATKS project (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/fatks). During this one year project, the following parts of the humanities vocabulary were developed: broad knowledge classification (300 concepts); generally applicable concepts (3000 concepts); religion (2200 concepts); the arts (300 terms). A contextual subject alphabetical index (chain index) contains 9300 entries.
