Suggests an alternative document representation method based on "exemplary documents," those that describe or exhibit the intellectual structure of a particular field of interest. Exemplary documents provide both an indexing vocabulary for that area and a narrative context in which the indexing terms have a clearer meaning. It is much easier to develop an indexing scheme using exemplary documents than to do so from scratch. (Contains 28 references.) (AEF)
