V: general class


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."

"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.

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.

Nuovo Soggettario Thesaurus

"Il Nuovo soggettario, curato dalla BNCF, è lo strumento italiano di indicizzazione per soggetto. Dopo la conclusione di una prima fase sperimentale e la pubblicazione del prototipo (gennaio 2007), il sistema è sottoposto ad evoluzione e costanti verifiche anche per garantirne un buon grado di coerenza, manutenzione e colloquio con i propri utenti. Il Thesaurus multidisciplinare viene via via incrementato tramite aggiornamenti semestrali e grazie alla partecipazione di altre istituzioni.

"Nuovo soggettario, edited by the National Central Library of Florence (Biblioteca nazionale centrale di Firenze), is a subject indexing tool for various types of information resources. It has been developed in compliance with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) recommendations and other international standards in the field of subject indexing.


"EuroVoc is a multilingual thesaurus which was originally built up specifically for processing the documentary information of the EU institutions.
It is a multi-disciplinary thesaurus covering fields which are sufficiently wide-ranging to encompass both Community and national points of view, with a certain emphasis on parliamentary activities. EuroVoc is a controlled set of vocabulary which can be used outside the EU institutions, particularly by parliaments.
