Title:Specificity and exhaustivity of bibliographic classifications – A cross-cultural comparison with text analytic approach
Author(s):Choi, Inkyung; Park, Min Sook
Subject(s):Bibliographic classification
Text analytics
Cross-cultural comparison
Abstract:The current study aims to detect sociocultural differences implied in the classification systems, employing text analytic techniques. By comparing Korean Decimal Classification (KDC) and Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), this study probes the gaps in exhaustivity and specificity in the two classification systems developed in distant social and cultural contexts. A computer-aided quantitative approach in cross-cultural comparison of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOSs) is a relatively new attempt. Besides the finding of the study will demonstrate how to utilize classification as a large textual data set and an automated classification reading.
