Richard P. Smiraglia, Ronald E. Day, Eva Hourihan Jansen, Kathryn La Barre

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This panel builds on the momentum of previous SIG/CR workshops towards examining the framing and scaffolding of knowledge in order to understand its bearing on seeking, reception, circulation and use of knowledge in research and knowledge organization systems. It features reports of research undertaken in North America and Europe relating to social and economic classifications of the International Labour Organization of the United Nations. It considers how the narrative arc of the field of information science exists in relation to social divisions of labour represented in occupational classification. Panelists will present new research and engage participants in discussion about trajectories for future research in knowledge organization.
