For the last ten years or so there has been a flood of papers, books, lectures, symposia, and discussions on indexing, classification, mechanical selection, subject analysis, information retrieval, and so on. An earlier generation used words and subject headings today we use isolates and analets, facets and phases, descriptors and uniterms. A glossary of current terminology in classification now runs to 350 terms, mostly of recent coinage.
