HASH(0x9234f360) out of 5 stars from 10 May 2009
By Miss Print - Published on
Format: Paperback
The first thing you need to know about Organizing Information: From the Shelf to the Web by G. G. and Sudatta Chowdhury is that it is published in England. Consequently, despite being the size of a trade paperback and a mere 230 pages, it will cost ninety-five dollars if bought new (and a fair hunk of change if you buy it used too). If you can get over the sticker shock, Organizing Information has some good stuff going for it. I will also grant that the high price was an excellent motivation to read the book in its entirety.

The book looks at what it means to organize information and how said organization works in realms outside the library. Later chapters look at specific aspects of knowledge organization in a library setting: cataloging (MARC), library classification (LCC, DDC, Colon), subject headings, organzing information on the web, metadata, markup languages, ontologies, information architecture, the semantic web, and finally current issues and trends.

I liked the structure of this book especially. Each chapter begins with an introduction that provides an overview of the topic before going into more detail in the body of the chapter which organized into different headings. The chapter ends with a summary, review questions, and a list of references.

Knowledge organization is one of those areas where some topics will be more interesting than others. This book gives everything a fair shake and provides a nice amount of information about everything. It just does so for a really ridiculous amount of money.

This book is clear and can be used as a textbook.
I love the way everything is explained and the contets can be applied on practical excercises or to prepare small courses on the subject.
I think it is difficult to find this content as well explained like this one.
