The Role of Classification in Terminology Documentation
Due to the rapid increase of terminological literature all over the world it became necessary to create appropriate tools for the bibliographic control of this relatively new subject field of its own right. Within the framework of content analysis of terminological literature classification activities have a predominant role. In order to facilitate and unify the classification of theoretical works in terminology, Infoterm established a new classification scheme called TCL (Terminology Classification) which covers also the neighbouring fields of this domain. Furthermore the classification of terminological vocabularies has again different requirements such as the availability of an abridged and condensed version of a universal classification scheme. Infoterm has also prepared a draft proposal for this purpose.
