CARMEN AP 12 (Cross concordances of Classifications and Thesauri)


Integrated search according to objective criteria in decentralised databases with varying key areas of content shall be made possible by developing cross concordances. The differences in the deployed classifications and thesauri are met by cross concordances. Prototypes of cross concordances between general classifications and specialised classifications are developed (Regensburger Verbundklassifikation RVK, Mathematical Subject Classification MSC, Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme PACS, Social Sciences Classification / Klassifikation Sozialwissenschaften) as well as cross concordances between a general thesaurus and special subject thesauri (Schlagwortnormdatei SWD / Subject Headings Authority File, Thesaurus Sozialwissenschaften / thesaurus social sciences, subject headings of the FIS Bildung).
