The Role of Classification in Knowledge Representation and Discovery.
Kwasnik, Barbara H.
Library Trends, v48 n1 p22-47 Sum 1999
The link between classification and knowledge is explored. The strengths and limitations of four classificatory approaches (hierarchies, trees, paradigms, and faceted analysis) are described in terms of their ability to reflect, discover, and create new knowledge. Examples are provided of the way in which knowledge and the classification process affect each other. (Author/MES)
