Subject indexing of non-book resources

International Conference

February 6th, 2023

Roma, Aula Odeion, Sapienza Università di Roma


Organized by

In collaboration with
SBS Sapienza

AIB CILW group and ISKO Italy, in collaboration with the library services (SBS) of Sapienza University of Rome,
organize the international conference Look beyond: Subject indexing of non-book resources.


Non-book resources (maps, images, music, audio-video etc.) are an important challenge for those dealing with subject indexing and knowledge organization (KO). To enhance access and usage of the subject content of such resources, practices of conceptual analysis for each resource type need to be shared. At the same time, we need to make possible the creation and management of indexing tools that allow for interoperability of cataloguing practices and meet user needs in searching and navigating, both within catalogues and out of them.

The spread of the Semantic Web, discovery tools and union catalogues has radically changed the way catalogues and access are implemented. Current debate about cataloguing practices is rich in proposal and stimulations for the library and information community at both national and international levels. This conference then aims at presenting and sharing practices, proposals and tools as well as reflecting about the improvement of access for an increasingly various community of users, who are changing their search habits so fast that traditional catalogue tools can hardly match them.

The conference

The conference spans one day, to which national and international experts in the field have been invited, who will give talks concerning subject indexing and classification.

Languages will be English and Italian.

The programme will be published soon.
