Almila Akdag Salah, Cheng Gao, Krzysztof Suchecki, Andrea Scharnhorst, Richard P. Smiraglia
2012 arXiv   pre-print
Study of evolution of classification includes ontogenetic analysis of change in classification over time. We present an empirical analysis of the UDC over the entire period of its development.  ...  But we also demonstrate a vast increase in the complexity of auxiliaries. This study illustrates an alternative to Tennis' "scheme-versioning" method.  ...  In his paper on subject ontogeny, Tennis refers to the evolution of classification as the revision of a knowledge organization system (KOS) as "a revised scheme absent of any record of what the knowledge  ...
