NEW BOOK RELEASE • Dimensions of Knowledge: Facets for Knowledge Organization

The Knowledge Organization Research Group (KOrg) of the UW-Milwaukee School of Information Studies (SOIS) is pleased to present its third publication, Dimensions of Knowledge: Facets for Knowledge Organization. It features contributions from members of KOrg and is edited by SOIS professor Dr. Richard Smiraglia and associate professor Dr. Hur-Li Lee.

As it has matured through more than a century of application, the notion of the facet in knowledge organization has taken on a variety of meanings, from that of simple categories used in web search engines to the more sophisticated idea of intersecting dimensions of knowledge. This book describes the state of the art of the understanding of facets in knowledge organization today.

The Knowledge Organization Research Group facilitates the discovery and development of knowledge in the field of knowledge organization and is dedicated to scientific excellence, cooperation, social responsibility, and dissemination of research.

This book was published September 13th, 2017 by Ergon-Verlag of Würzburg, Germany.
