Searching today, in both Web search engines and library systems,
predominantly uses keyword searching techniques. Integrating
structured thesauri and classifications with keyword searching is
difficult because keyword searching is a mechanical matter of matching
strings. What thesauri and classifications have are links, which means
that it may be possible to exploit them better in a linked data
environment. Coyle will expand on this possibility with some thoughts
and some open-ended questions.
