Strategies for Manipulating Universal Decimal Classification Relationships for Computer Retrieval. Final Report.
Caless, T. W.; And Others
An investigation was made of the Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) as an indexing language for computer retrieval. Problem areas were identified (notation, schedules, application), new developments reviewed (combining precedence devices, subject analysis matrices, guidelines for schedule revision, pilot schedules, parenthesis-free notation for searching), and a broad overview and history of the UDC are presented in ten papers. Faceted classification techniques applied to the UDC are recommended throughout the investigation for better consistency in application. (Author)
