Woodhead Publishing Ltd’s new book “Library Classification Trends in the 21st Century” traces the development in and around library classification as reported in literature published in the first decade of the 21st century.

Business Wire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Research and Markets: Library Classification Trends in the 21st Century.” Their review of literature published on various aspects of library classification includes modern applications of classification such as Internet resource discovery, automatic book classification, text categorization, modern manifestations of classification (such as taxonomies, folksonomies and ontologies), and interoperable systems enabling crosswalk.

It is an interesting read and will be useful to classification researchers, LIS faculties, and postgraduate students in library and information science.
