About this book

Introduction

Logic and the Organization of Information closely examines the historical and contemporary methodologies used to catalogue information objects—books, ebooks, journals, articles, web pages, images, emails, podcasts and more—in the digital era.

This book provides an in-depth technical background for digital librarianship, and covers a broad range of theoretical and practical topics including: classification theory, topic annotation, automatic clustering, generalized synonymy and concept indexing, distributed libraries, semantic web ontologies and Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS). It also analyzes the challenges facing today’s information architects, and outlines a series of techniques for overcoming them.

Logic and the Organization of Information is intended for practitioners and professionals working at a design level as a reference book for digital librarianship. Advanced-level students, researchers and academics studying information science, library science, digital libraries and computer science will also find this book invaluable.
