Apologies for overlooking this message meant for the list. -ed. ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Mon, 11 Mar 1996 19:10:30 CST From: Gerry McKiernan <JL.GJM@ISUMVS.IASTATE.EDU> Subject: Schemes for Organizing the Web For a review of current efforts to organize Web resources, I would greatly appreciate the title and URL of homepages that use or have adapted standard (or non-standard) classification systems to manage a collection of Internet resources. Although, I am particularly interested in projects that have applied such schemes at _detailed levels of specificity_, efforts to organize resources using a structured scheme at broad or intermediate levels are also of interest. These may be major or minor classification schemes used for monographic or serial works, or any used by established indexing and abstracting services for classifying or categorizing a selected literature. I am interested in sites that have used such schemes to organize resources in Science and Technology and such related areas as Agriculture and Medicine, as well as other disciplines. The following are some of the major classification schemes and associated key sites I've identified to date: NUMERIC _DEWEY_ CyberDewey http://ivory.lm.com/~mundie/DDHC/CyberDewey.html _MATHEMATICS SUBJECT CLASSIFICATION_ Mathematics on the Web http://www.ams.org/mathweb/mi-mathbyclass.html/ _Ei CLASSIFICATION CODE_ Engineering Electronic Library, Sweden (EELS) http://www.ub2.lu.se/eel/eelhome.html _UDC (UNIVERSAL DECIMAL CLASSIFICATION)_ BUBL http://www.bubl.bath.ac.uk/BUBL/Tree.html Edinburgh Engineering Virtual Library (EEVL) http://eevl.icbl.hw.ac.uk/ NISS Information Gateway http://www.niss.ac.uk OMNI, Organising Medical Networked Information http://omni.ac.uk ALPHANUMERIC LIBRARY OF CONGRESS CyberStacks(sm) http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/ All sites will be appropriately categorized and hotlinked from the CyberStacks(sm) homepage here at Iowa State over the next few weeks and made accessible from the following URL: http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/CTW.htm Any and all suggestions and recommendations, as always, will be much appreciated.
