Abstract: "The knowledge structures that form traditional library classification schemes hold great potential for improving resource description and discovery on the Internet and for organizing electronic document collections. The advantages of assigning subject tokens (classes) to documents from a scheme like the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system are well documented and include: providing subject-oriented browsing structures; giving context to search terms; enabling search refinement; providing mechanisms for partitioning and manipulating results sets; and enabling multilingual access."
