_Candidates for _Beyond Bookmarks: Schemes for Organizing the Web_
I am greatly interested in identifying additional Web collections
that have adopted/adapted Library classification schemes or controlled
vocabularies to organize Web resources. These will be reviewed for
inclusion in my Web clearinghouse _Beyond Bookmarks: Schemes for
Organizing the Web_.
_Beyond Bookmarks_ is available at:
I am not only interested in the application of international schemes
such as Dewey and Library of Congress, but *national and local* library
schemes as well. Of particular interest is the application of a
*controlled vocabulary* for organizing or augmenting access to a Web
Among the sites that I have recently added is the AgNIC [
http://www.agnic.org ] site from the National Agricultural Library (NAL)
that makes use of an internally-developed thesaurus titled "NAL
Agricultural Classification Prototype "
As Always, Any and All contributions, queries, critiques, comments,
questions, concerns, etc., etc. are Most Welcome.
