Library classification schemes and access to electronic collections enhancement of the Dewey Decimal Classification with supplemental vocabulary /

A traditional library classification scheme, such as the Dewey Decimal Classification, requires ongoing improvements to the terminology of caption headings and to the currency, size and scope of its indexing vocabulary if it is to function effectively as a knowledge structuring tool for electronic collections. In this paper we describe two complementary research efforts to enhance the DDC with supplemental vocabulary. One project focuses on effecting links between the DDC and other subject access systems. The other project is concerned with associating current and end-user terminology from full text with the DDC. With these more versatile versions of the DDC, we are exploring the potential for automatically assigning classes to electronic documents.
