Semiotics and Indexing: An Analysis of the Subject Indexing Process.
Mai, Jens-Erik
Journal of Documentation, v57 n5 p591-622 Sep 2001
Explains some major problems related to the subject indexing process and proposes semiotics as a framework for understanding the interpretive nature of the process. Explores the approach to studies of indexing and library and information science suggested by Fairthorne, Blair, Benediktsson, and others. Offers an explanation of what occurs in the indexing process and suggests there is only little certainty to its result. (AEF)
