Purpose – The aim of this article is to estimate the impact of faceted classification and the faceted analytical method on the development of various information retrieval tools over the latter part of the twentieth and early twenty‐first centuries. [...] Key Method Some attention is paid to use of the faceted approach as a means of structuring information on commercial web sites.Expand
A Faceted Classification as the Basis of a Faceted Terminology: Conversion of a Classified Structure to Thesaurus Format in the Bliss Bibliographic Classification, 2nd Edition
TLDR
The process of creating a compatible thesaurus from the schedules of the Bliss Bibliographic Classification 2nd edition highlights the ways in which the conceptual relationships in a subject field are handled in the two types of retrieval languages. Expand
The implementation of faceted classification in web site searching and browsing
TLDR
A prototype faceted classification system (FCS) that is integrated into a general open‐source content management system and populated with a sample collection of institutional web pages/documents is demonstrated. Expand
Performance and usability testing of multidimensional taxonomy in web site search and navigation
TLDR
The paper compares the FCS interfaces to the existing single‐classification system to evaluate the usability of the facets in typical navigation and searching tasks. Expand
Describing engineering documents with faceted approaches: Observations and reflections
TLDR
The difficulty of applying faceted classification outside of library contexts is highlighted and it is indicated that faceted approaches are poorly expressed to non‐experts and is the process purely top‐down or bottom‐up. Expand
The use of facets in Web search engines
The World Wide Web consists of a plethora of information that a Web searcher can retrieve via Web search engines such as Google. These Web search engines display an insurmountable amount ofExpand
The Thesaurus: A Historical Viewpoint, with a Look to the Future
TLDR
The technique of facet analysis has profoundly influenced thesauri evolution and acted as models for two distinct breeds of thesaurus using faceted displays of terms. Expand
Logic and the Organization of Information
TLDR
Using concepts for indexing provides an approach for addressing the information retrieval concerns of synonymy and homography and faceted classification enables faceted search and retrieval. Expand
Faceted classification in web information architecture: A framework for using semantic web tools
TLDR
The proposed framework adapts the facet analysis theory from Faceted Classification System to use semantic web tools especially XML and RDF store, and ontology, and is designed to be integrated within a Content Management System (CMS). Expand
Folksonomies : Unstructured “ Wisdom of the Crowd
This paper examines the use of the postulational approach to facet analysis to manually induce a faceted classification ontology from a folksonomy. An in-depth study of faceted classification theoryExpand
Big data moment and faceted theory: a structured review
TLDR
According to literature, web system architecture based on the faceted analysis appears to be highly common even in the big data settings, and more theoretical and empirical work is necessary to firm up this standpoint. Expand

Facet classification in online retrieval
TLDR
It is argued that faceted classification systems in some respect are superior to other techniques of online retrieval as far as facet and concept analysis is combined with an expressive notational system to guide a form of retrieval which will use Boolean operators and truncation for retrieving hierarchically different sets of documents.

Ranganathan and the Net: using facet analysis to search and organise the World Wide Web
TLDR
It is argued that facet analysis as an a posteori approach to classification using words from the subject field as the concept terms in the classification derived represents an excellent approach to searching and organising the results of WWW searches using either search engines or search directories. Expand

TLDR
Use of facet analysis to structure hypertext concept structures is outlined in relation to work on development of hypertext knowledge bases for designers of learning materials and construction of knowledge based hypertext interfaces. Expand
Ranganathan in the Perspective of Advanced Information Retrieval
TLDR
Though Ranganathan's criterion of helpful sequence and other aspects of his methodology may have limitations when applied to areas other than subject classification, his principles for knowledge organization and faceted methodology are likely to find applications in cognitive modellind, neural natwork tehniques and patterns recognition.
