The Dynamics of Classification Systems as Boundary Objects for Cooperation in the Electronic Library.
Albrechtsen, Hanne; Jacob, Elin K.
Library Trends, v47 n2 p293-312 Fall 1998
Libraries should be active participants in knowledge production, and should develop classificatory structures that support the needs of a diverse information ecology consisting of a complex web of interacting agents, users, and technologies. Within such an information ecology, a classificatory structure cannot follow a one-size-fits-all paradigm, but must evolve in cooperative interaction between librarians and their users. (Author/AEF)
