ORGANIZING

We believe that a comprehensive application of a well-established classification system such as the Library of Congress classification scheme, in a hypertext environment, offers the value-added structure, organization, dimension, context, and level of specificity and description, that can enhance the overall efficiency and effectiveness of users seeking to identify and use relevant and related WWW and other Internet resources.
Unlike the InterCat database and NetFirst(tm) service, CyberStacks(sm) presents users with a browsable collection of resources in general categories (Fig. O-3)

Within CyberStacks(sm), we have applied the Library of Congress classification scheme at a deep level of specificity and description, enabling users to browse through a virtual library with resources organized by their respective assigned classification numbers.
While NetFirst(tm) has adapted hypertext to facilitate enhanced access to more text, CyberStacks(sm) has adopted hypertext and the browser medium to create context and structure to provide associated meaning. We believe that an organized structured classification system, such as the Library of Congress classification scheme, offers users a framework that can facilitate efficient and effective identification, access and use of selected Internet resources.
