Konstanzer Systematik

"Die Konstanzer Systematik ist eine Aufstellungssystematik zur sachlichen Erschließung von Beständen an wissenschaftlichen Bibliotheken. Sie wurde mit der Gründung der Universität Konstanz (1966) an der Bibliothek der Universität Konstanz für große Freihandbestände in einem einschichtigen Bibliothekssystem entwickelt. Seitdem wird die Konstanzer Systematik von den Konstanzer Fachreferent*innen gepflegt und weiterentwickelt."

The Konstanzer Systematik (KonSys) is a classification scheme for academic libraries, developed at the Library of the University of Konstanz in 1966 for the newly founded University as an in-house classification scheme for its own extensive holdings on the open shelves. Since that time the KonSys was maintained and developed further by the subject specialsists of the Library.

Library Classification

"There are already in the field many rival schemes of classification for libraries. The present publication is not intended to add one to the number, but rather to offer a way of escape for those who shrink from the intricacies and difficulties of the elaborate systems, and to substitute for painstaking analytical classification a simple arrangement which it is believed is better adapted to be practically useful in a library, while doing away with most of the work involved in carrying out one of these schemes."

Universal Binary Classification

"This proposed new classification scheme is based on two main elements: hierarchism and binary theory. Hence, it is called Universal Binary Classification (UBC). Some advantages of this classification are highlighted including subject heading development, construction of a thesaurus, and all terms with meaningful features arranged in tabular form that can help researchers, through a semantic process, to find what they need. This classification scheme is fully consistent with the classification of knowledge.

Systematik der Stadtbibliothek Duisburg

"Die 'Systematik der Stadtbibliothek Duisburg' (SSD) ist eine Klassifikation für die inhaltliche Erschließung von Beständen Öffentlicher Bibliotheken und wurde in Anlehnung an die ASB (damals: 'Allgemeine Systematik für Büchereien') speziell für die Bedürfnisse der Stadtbibliothek Duisburg entwickelt. Erstmals 1966 veröffentlicht wurde sie seitdem mehrmals überarbeitet; die 1980 und 1987 erschienenen Fassungen tragen den Namen 'Klassifikation der Sachliteratur und der Schönen Literatur'.

The classfication of the city library Duisburg (SSD) is a classification for the content development of public libraries and was developed specifically for the needs of the Stadtbibliothek Duisburg in line with the ASB. It was first published in 1966 and has since been revised several times; The versions published in 1980 and 1987 bear the name 'classification of the literary literature and the fine literature'. The SSD is widely used in many public libraries and school libraries in Germany and Austria.

Field of Science and Technology Classification

"Statistical units in the PNP sector are classified into the six major fields of science and technology suggested in UNESCO’s 'Recommendation Concerning the International Standardisation of Statistics on Science and Technology' (1978). (...) While the major fields of science and technology are clearly defined, the level of disaggregation within each component field is left to each country. (...) The criterion for classification is the major field of science in which most of the R&D activity is undertaken.

Proposed International Standard Nomenclature for Fields of Science and Technology

"The Proposed international standard nomenclature for fields of science and technology was proposed in 1973 and 1974 by the Division of Science Policy and Statistics for Science and Technology of UNESCO and adopted by the Scientific Advisory Committee. This is a classification system widely used in knowledge management of research projects and dissertations. Categories are divided into three hierarchical levels: Fields: Refering to general sections. Encoded with two digits and comprises several disciplines. Disciplines: Provide an overview of specialty groups in Science and Technology.

المكنز الموسع

"المكنز هو عبارة عن قائمة إستنادية بالواصفات أو مصطلحات التكشيف في نظام المعلومات فهو الأداة التي يعتمد عليها المكشف في الحصول على المصطلحات أو الواصفات المناسبة لوصف محتوى الوثائق وهو أيضاً الأداة التي يعتمد عليها الباحث أو المستفيد من النظام في الاسترجاع فالمكنز إذاً هو حلقة الوصل بين المكشف والباحث وهو الذي يوفر أقصى درجة كفاءة في التخزين والاسترجاع."

"The goal behind this project is the development of an extensive Arabic thesaurus that would encompass all fields of knowledge – something that most libraries and information centers in the Arab world lack – to serve as the basic instrument of subjective analysis of information retrieval devices, and to keep abreast with developments taking place in information technology.
