Introduction to Subject Indexing; A Programmed Text. Volume One: Subject Analysis and Practical Classification.
Brown, Alan George
This programed text presents the basic principles and practices of subject indexing--limited to the area of precoordinate indexing. This first of two volumes deals with the subject analysis of documents, primarily at the level of summarization, and the basic elements of translation into classification schemes. The text includes regular self-tests of the concepts presented, and the reader is routed through the book according to the accuracy of his answers. (EMH)
