Subject Classification: Quilts and Quilting for Curators and Collection Managers

I was tasked with defining, labelling, and relating a set of 30-40 concepts to serve as a proof of concept for document organization. The classification was required provide a cohesive structure to elucidate the conceptual landscape for a single subject area.

After creating a faceted classification, I applied test cases to the structure to ensure fundamental concepts had been identified and accounted for, and then wrote a critical reflection on the process and overall design.  It should be noted that the faceted approach is not a different representational structure so much as it is a different approach to the classification process itself.
