Disciplines and Phenomena in Knowledge Organization Systems
While word-based KOSs most often list terms for phenomena (e.g. stars, political parties), bibliographic classifications usually list disciplines, so that one phenomenon can be scattered in different classes according to the aspect/perspective under which it is considered.
Claudio Gnoli presented recent projects which are developing phenomenon-based classifications. Phenomena and perspectives are but two of several dimensions of knowledge, also including documents, collections, user needs, people and cognition.
The class was delivered via Zoom and was attended by 89 participants from 27 countries. Presentation slides are available to all participants via the KO-ED forum on the ISKO UK website.
