Subject indexing is the act of describing or classifying a document by index terms or other symbols in order to indicate what the document is about, to summarize its content or to increase its other words, it is about identifying and describing the subject of documents.

Coordinate indexing, a system invented by Dr. Mortimer Tauhe and his associates in Documentation incorporated, is based on the conception of the uniterm.

The theory is that each book or periodical title, each periodical article, etc., can be reduced for Coordinate indexing book purposes to a number of basic ideas capable of being represented mostly by single.

course, a bound book form of bibliography implies a closed indexing method, because additional articles or words cannot be included in the bibliography once it is published. Use of Coordinate indexing book. The second fundamental advantage is that, with the new method, making a bibliography can be highly mechanized, and the actual work of the bibliographer is reduced to a minimum.

Shortly thereafter, coordinate indexing, developed by Mortimer Taube and colleagues at a company named Documentation Inc., was a direct outgrowth of these ideas and it took the IR world by storm; interestingly, Taube referred to coordinate indexing, following Bush, as "association of ideas" (Taube and Associates, ).

Pre-coordinate indexing systems are conventional systems mostly found in printed indexes. In this type of system, a document is represented in the index by a heading or headings comprising of a chain or string of terms.

These terms taken together are expected to define the subject content of the document. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Taube, Mortimer, Studies in coordinate indexing. [Washington] Documentation Incorporated, In postcoordinate indexing, complex subjects are represented by several different headings rather than a single heading.

For example, a history of Arizona might be assigned the headings 'Arizona' and 'History'. In precoordinate indexing, the work might be given a single heading, 'Arizona - History'.

What is Pre-Coordinate Indexing System. Definition of Pre-Coordinate Indexing System: Terms are created before the items are analyzed. This is generally a predictable, limited set of terms, with one term for each concept.

Post Coordinate Indexing Features Types(Uniterm, Peek a-boo) Advantage, Disadvantage Conclusion 3. The tremendous explosion of scientific literature during and after World War II overwhelmed manual indexing and retrieval methods.

To meet the need for greater control over the mushrooming expansion of information American librarian Mortimer Taube developed the system (and later the theory) of Coordinate Indexing, and helped to establish its use as a major tool in automated library searches.

In precoordinate indexing, a complex subject is represented by a single heading rather than separate headings for different aspects of the subject heading. For example, a history of Arizona might be assigned the heading 'Arizona - History.' In postcoordinate indexing, the work might be given separate headings 'Arizona' and for 'History'.

Thus, assigned indexing can be of two types—Pre-coordinate indexing and Post-coordinate indexing. L Pre-coordinate Indexing The indexing systems in which coordination of terms representing the subject is done beforehand, i.e., at the indexing stage, are called pre-coordinate indexing systems.

Pre- Coordinate Indexing Systems No comments Cutter’s Rules for Dictionary Catalogue It was Charles Ammi Cutter who first gave a generalised set of rules for subject indexing in his Rules for a Dictionary Catalogue (RDC) published in   Post –coordinate Indexing System As the coordination of index terms in done after the index files has been compiled, this indexing system is called post-coordinate indexing system.

Examples for post-coordinate indexing system: Uniterm system of Taube dates about Peek- aboo by batter in England and cordonnier in France by INDEXING AND ABSTRACTING Course Overview The present era has been described as The Information Age.

This is because of the belief that the 21st Century society of the world is a knowledge-based one in which data, information and knowledge are integral to the existence of the human race.

He was important to the Library Science field because he invented Coordinate Indexing, which uses “uniterms” in the context of cataloging. It is the forerunner to computer based mater: University of Chicago. index (1) See indexed color.

However, computer-based indexes may point to a physical location on a disk or to a logical location that points elsewhere to the actual location.

While most indexing for books and journals today is ‘pre-coordinate’ indexing that gives you the whole phrase (such as ‘female anxiety’), post-coordinate indexing is still a dominant feature of computer databases and is an aspect of taxonomy-building.
