Search versus Classify

Paul introduced the argument of a "search" engaging in the records management world and comparing this with traditional classification. Do we need taxonomists? A number of companies are investing in the development of search based solutions which admit the existence of content only through search, ignoring classification, or at best, limiting its value. Controlled lists, thematic based search, indexing documents are just some of the challenges to face records managers in coming years. Paul Dodgson is using this as the basis of a master degree dissertation which he hopes to complete by July 2008. The results will be published in late 2008.
