Description: Product Description:
Learn step-by-step how to develop knowledge-based products for international use!

Knowledge Organization and Classification in International Information Retrieval examines current efforts to deal with the increasing globalization of information and knowledge. International authors walk you through the theoretical foundations and conceptual elements behind knowledge management, addressing areas such as the Internet, multinational resources, translations, and information languages. The tools, techniques, and case studies provided in this book will be invaluable to anyone interested in bridging the international information retrieval language gap.

This book is divided into four sections that address major themes for internationalized information and knowledge:

"General Bibliographic Systems" discusses how bibliographic classification systems can be adapted for specific subjects, the problems with addressing different language expressions, and the future of these systems

"Information Organization in Knowledge Resources" explores knowledge organization and classification, focusing mainly on libraries and on the Internet
"Linguistics, Terminology, and Natural Language Processing" analyzes the latest developments in language processing and the design of information retrieval tools and resources
"Knowledge in the World and the World of Knowledge" addresses the ontological foundations of knowledge organization and classification and knowledge management in organizations from different cultures

With this book, you'll gain a better understanding about the international efforts to globalize:

the Dewey Decimal Classification
the Library of Congress Classification
the Universal Decimal Classification
multilingual thesauri
Web directories of education-related resources
human language technology
metadata schemas
the North American Industry Classification

Figures, tables, charts, and diagrams elucidate the concepts in Knowledge Organization and Classification in International Information Retrieval. Information educators and practitioners as well as specialists in classification and knowledge organization will find this book valuable for its focus on the problems of-and solutions for-information retrieval for specific linguistic, cultural, and domain communities of discourse.
