Demonstration using Medical Subject Headings

Dear all

We have built a demonstration, using faceted-like principles, that 
presents c30,000 documents from 6 different sources (libraries, 
academic and image collections), classified against 30,000+ 
categories of the Medical Subject Headings 
(http://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/meshhome.html).  The categories are 
displayed as a browsable tree which updates to reflect selections 
made.  The demonstration also employs keyword search that can be used 
to update the browsable categories.  The demonstration is at 
http://www.facetdemo.com - please email me if you would like a 
username and password to access the site.

All feedback on the user interface would be welcome.

[Sigcr-l] ASIST Classification Research Workshop

Call for Papers:  13th Annual ASIST SIG CR Workshop

ASIST Classification Research Special Interest Group (SIG/CR)  studies the
fundamental principles, underlying processes, and analytic constructs of
classification schemes and procedures by humans or automata. It is
concerned with organizing information, and includes indexing, index
construction, indexing language, thesaurus construction, terminology,
classification of information in any form, and testing and evaluating the
effectiveness of these products. It is also concerned with the ability to
develop abstractions from perceived reality. Theoretical emphases include
cognition, grouping and organization of groupings, and linguistics.

Date:   October 18, 2003

Location:  Long Beach, California

Topic:  A Taxonomy By Any Other Name State of the Art Implementation of
Classification Research in Information Technologies

In conjunction wiith the ASIST Annual Meetings, SIG/CR sponsors an annual
workshop to discuss current work in the field.   The goal of the annual
workshop is to share current knowledge of research in the
field.   Technologies that support or use classification research are at a
critical stage of development providing a great opportunity to share what
has been learned implementing classification research across disciplines
and professional associations.

For this reason, the 2003 SIG/CR Workshop will focus on automated methods
that leverage research in classification schemes and procedures, including
classification, clustering, and indexing.   Presenters are encouraged to

Facets for IA resources

Hi all!

In your opinion, what facets could work good to classify resources
