Computer-assisted abridgment of a classification scheme

Work is under way to define and test a model for semi-automatic abridgment of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system. This abridgment is guided by data in the current full and abridged editions and by principles and practices that inform development and maintenance of the classification. The model is immediately applicable to the development of the next abridged edition of the DDC; other applications include derivation of different views of the DDC and management of multilingual content at various levels of development
