RE: [facetedclassification] Introductions
- Hi all,
I'm a library/info science student at the University of North Carolina. At
this point, I've had relatively little practical experience with faceted
classification, but philosophically, it seems to me the only classification
system that makes any sense at all in an online environment, and the best
classification system for interdisciplinary areas in collections. I hope to
experiment with it in a database I'm building as a Masters Project, and so
far, it seems your experiences with it will be very helpful,

- Thank you Claudio. Much appreciated. I had a good
reading from William Denton
Regards to everyone!
