Abstract:
In her paper Beghtol (2003) outlines how scholarly activities and research leads to classification systems which subsequently are disseminated in publications which are classified in information retrieval systems, retrieved by the users and again used in scholarly activities and so on. We think this model is correct and that its point is important. What we are reacting to is the fact that Beghtol describes the classifications developed by scholars as â naïveâ while she describes the classifications developed by librarians and information scientists as â professionalâ . We fear that this unfortunate terminology is rooted in deeply anchored misjudgments about the relationships between scientific and scholarly classification on the one side and LIS classifications on the other. Only a correction of this misjudgment may give us in the field of knowledge organization a chance to do a job that is not totally disrespected and disregarded by the rest of the intellectual world.
