Title:Thesauri and Facets and Tags, Oh My! A Look at Three Decades in Subject Analysis
Author(s):Schwartz, Candy
Subject(s):Lancaster, F. Wilfrid (Frederick Wilfrid), 1933-
Abstract:The field of subject analysis enjoyed a flurry of interest in the 1970s, and has recently become a focus of attention again. The scholarly community doing work in this area has become more diffuse, and has grown to include new groups, such as information architects. Changes in information services and information seeking have led to reexamination of the nature and role of subject analysis tools and practices. This selective review looks at thesauri, guided navigation, and folksonomy as three activity areas in which subject analysis researchers have been attempting to address rapidly changing new environments.
