|Title:||Classification at the crossroad|
|Abstract:||Using the criteria of facet analysis, facet formula and fundamental categories, a comparative and critical appraisal of the traditional general classification and newly emerging special classification schemes, with their roots in faceted classification, is conducted. The efficiency of the latter schemes from the viewpoint of their information retrieval capacity is also evaluated. Judging from the present state of development of general classification, it is concluded that the evaluation of a general universal classification scheme, using faceted structure as its base, is still a remote possibility.|
