Joseph T. Tennis is an advisor to an NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Grant, Level II on “Developing the Data Set of Nineteenth-Century Knowledge.” This complements his work on the history and ontology of Nineteenth-Century Classification and its relationship to contemporary design commitments and philosophical assumptions.
Joseph T. Tennis also finished a festschrift for Allyson Carlyle this summer. The festschrift is a special issue of Cataloging and Classification Quarterly which features three of Allyson’s students, Melanie Feinberg ('08), Rachel Ivy Clarke ('16), and Joseph T. Tennis ('05), as well as a reprint of a paper by Allyson’s former advisor, Elaine Svenonius. We are also including a comprehensive bibliography of Allyson’s works in the festschrift. The special issue is slated for publication for the spring of 2019. The article titles are below:
- Clarke. “Cataloging Research by Design: A Taxonomic Approach to Understanding Research Questions in Cataloging.”
- Feinberg. “Factotem: What is information access for?”
- Svenonius. “Bibliographic Entities and their Uses.”
- Tennis. “Four Orders of Classification Theory and Their Implications.”
