It's Only a Meme if It's from the Knowledge Organization Region of Information Science, Otherwise It's Just a Tweet.
AbstractIn this short paper, we conducted a preliminary investigation of how internet memes use knowledge organization concepts in their transmission and communication of messages. Using classification, thesaural relationships, and metadata statements, we examined the employment of knowledge organization in the formula of a common internet meme and how the use of these concepts allowed meme creators to convey their argument.
