[Sigia-l] RE: Function Facet?
Functional classification and the associated vocabulary is a very commonly
used strategy for records management. There is a great deal in the records
management literature about functional classification, with vocabulary as an
aspect of this.
Two examples of thesauri/CV
http://www.e-government.govt.nz/nzgls/thesauri/index.asp which are NZ
products, used by the e-government portal and government departments for
their metadata. One is the Functions of NZ, the other the Subjects of NZ,
and they are designed to work together.
http://www.naa.gov.au/recordkeeping/control/KeyAAA/summary.html which is an
Australian product, used widely through state government
You might be better asking this question on some of the records lists -
Recmgmt-L is one of the main ones
(http://www.lsoft.com/scripts/wl.exe?SL1=RECMGMT-L&H=LISTS.UFL.EDU), but the
Australian and NZ lists are also excellent resources. Feel free to contact
me off-list for further information.
(As a small aside, and no criticism intended of any person, I'm still
surprised that IAs don't seem to think much about records management - (I
was really struck by it when reading Rosenfeld and Morville's Polar bear
book - the list of disciplinary backgrounds which might be sources of IAs
fails to include records managers) - and believe me, there are strong
similarities between the two disciplines.
But then I may be biased - I'm a librarian by background, working part time
on RM consultancy and part time lecturing. I'm learning IA in various ways,
including this list which is a wonderful source of info - thanks everyone!)
