"With chapters on the many complex methods one must deal with to maintain the integrity of original documents, items, and other important subjects, The Organization of Information is complete and comprehensive in its application. The Organization of Information is enhanced with bibliographies, indexes, glossaries, and more, making it an absolute must for any archive which wants to serve its purpose well." - The Midwest Book Review
"While the text covers the theory, principles, standards, and tools behind information organization in all types of environments, the main focus is on libraries. The text has been reorganized and extensively updated throughout, including new and expanded material on indexing, abstracting, archival finding aids, museum databases, metadata models, XML and XML schemas, the future of MARC, discovery interfaces to information systems, next generation catalogs, new metadata standards (DACS, CCO, CDWA, and FRBR), bibliographic relationships and authority control, the aboutness of an information resource, issues related to tagging, the nature of categories and classification, and clustering." - Reference & Research Book News
"This work is highly recommended for anyone seeking to know more about the organization of information." - ARBA --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
