Color by numbers

Exploring color as classification notation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Notation is a fundamental component to bibliographic classification. However, notation often is considered an afterthought despite its inherent role. Advances in technology and changing user needs imply the need for an evolution of classificatory notation. This exploratory poster will investigate the possible potential of color as classificatory notation by distilling the traditional functions of notation, examining theories and standards of color use, and considering their potential applications to classification.
