  • Christof Wolters
Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


Twenty years of experience with computers in museums has led from the original “purely scientific” objectives to a more down-to-earth approach aimed at rationalizing repetitive procedures. Dealing with fragmentary or unclean data is of primary concern. In the “Small Museums” project useful techniques from the field of thesaurus applications are customized in daily practice for this purpose.
