The Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies (JCMS) has an overall focus on the care and exhibition of collection items. The scope thus includes conservation science, artefact studies, restoration, museum studies, environment studies, collection management, and curation. This interesting information came from The Ancient World Online in their blog post, “Open Access Monograph Series: Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies Special Collections.” Those responsible for cataloging information, especially in museums, might find this of interest as well.

Developing a classification system organized into conceptually similar categories can help users gain a better understanding of the subject area. It is important to remember the value of a solid taxonomy and its role in the search process. How the content is classified impacts the findability of your data. Access Innovations has extensive experience in constructing taxonomies for academic publishers, and can provide solutions that are ANSI compliant.
