Influence of Classification on Information Filtering
AbstractVast amounts of information are available via the Internet and there are indications that the volume of scholarly information shared across the Internet is increasing [Okerson, 1995]. Tools such as WAIS, Lycos and Webcrawler have been developed to allow users to access information, but these tools require the user to be actively involved in locating that information. With the explosive growth in digital and non-digital information, however, it has become increasingly difficult to find the time necessary to search for information.
