Brian Vickery and the Classification Research Group: the legacy of faceted classification

This paper considers the impact of faceted classification as it developed in the United Kingdom; it examines the origins of the Classification Research Group and Brian Vickery’s unique contribution to it, and the way in which faceted classification today has fulfilled the objectives of the CRG’s 1955 manifesto to make ‘faceted classification the basis of all information retrieval’.
