Call for papers
Open Session for the Classification & Indexing Section
"Dynamic Subject Access: Evolution and Transformation?"
The Classification & Indexing Sections will be organizing an open session during the 2015 conference in Cape Town. We are seeking papers addressing new and interesting ways of supplying subject access. Subject access tools and services are not limited to libraries only: important developments are (also) happening elsewhere. We would like to explore novel ways of exposing library subject metadata to other communities and, on the other hand, libraries using subject access tools developed by others. Topics include:
· big data & subject access
· use and reuse of subject metadata and tools
· the chain of supply in the creation of subject metadata
· providing form/genre access in addition to subject access
