The information world is coping not only with new types of documents (e.g. home pages), but also with new ways of searching for, retrieving and conveying electronic documents. Information practitioners and researchers are beginning to look to the concept of taxonomy, classification, and genre for help in dealing with these novel circumstances and with the proliferation of new products and techniques that support them.
Please join us at the IRMAC annual luncheon to hear Clare Beghtol expand on the ideas of Concept of Genre and the classification of information not only to meet the business needs of the organization, but also within the social framework of the organization
Before being appointed to FIS, Professor Beghtol held professional positions as Director of Research, Ketchum Canada, Inc. and as Chief Cataloguer/Indexer for The Journal, CBC-TV. She is President (1998-2002) of ISKO (International Society of Knowledge Organization), and Editor-in-Chief of the journal Knowledge Organization. She is active in ASIS (American Society of Information Science), where she has served as Chair of the Classification Research Special Interest Group and in other capacities. Her publications include articles in Journal of the American Society for Information Science, Knowledge Organization, Library Resources & Technical Services, Journal of Documentation, Libri, Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, and International Classification, among others. The Classification of Fiction: The Development of a System Based on Theoretical Principles was published in 1994.
