Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This third edition of Taylor's modern classic continues to articulate the theory, principles, standards, and tools behind information organization.

As with previous editions, it begins with strong justification for the continued importance of organizing principles and practice. Following a broad overview of the concept and its role in human endeavors, Taylor and Joudrey provide a detailed and insightful discussion of such basic retrieval tools as inventories, bibliographies, catalogs, indexes, finding aids, registers, databases, major bibliographic utilities, and other organizing entities; and subsequently trace the development of the organization of recorded information in Western civilization from 2000 B.C.E. to the present. Standards of codification (MARC, SGML, and various DTDs), controlled vocabularies and ontologies, and Web 2.0 technologies are but a sample of its extensive topical coverage.

Still the title of choice for students and professionals eager to embrace the heritage, immediacy, and future of this fascinating field of study.

Book News Annotation:

Library and information science specialists Taylor (U. of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) and Joudrey (Simmons College, Boston, Massachusetts) present their third edition text for students, practicing librarians, and others interested in organizing information. While the text covers the theory, principles, standards, and tools behind information organization in all types of environments, the main focus is on libraries. The text has been reorganized and extensively updated throughout, including new and expanded material on indexing, abstracting, archival finding aids, museum databases, metadata models, XML and XML schemas, the future of MARC, discovery interfaces to information systems, next generation catalogs, new metadata standards (DACS, CCO, CDWA, and FRBR), bibliographic relationships and authority control, the aboutness of an information resource, issues related to tagging, the nature of categories and classification, and clustering.
