Research question
Research Question

Can we use UDC’s Class 2 as the framework for an alternative view of religion in the DDC and a model for future revision of 200 Religion?


Project stage 1
Project: Stage 1

  • Develop top-level crosswalk for major religions

  • Develop detailed crosswalk using Buddhism as case study

  • Use initial findings to plan for Stage 2


Ddc view based on udc excerpt
DDC View Based on UDC (excerpt)

Taoism (299.514)

Confucianism (299.512)

Hinduism (294.5)

Jainism (294.4)

Sikhism (294.6)

Buddhism (294.3)

Buddhism case study 1 udc 24 ddc notation
Buddhism Case Study 1: UDC 24 + DDC notation

DDC 294.333 Buddhist mythology = 243.3

  • Moves to chronological position

  • Retains DDC number building and internal/auxiliary tables

  • Meaningless notation in either system

  • Retains limited development


Buddhism case study 2 detailed mapping
Buddhism Case Study 2: Detailed Mapping


Findings
Findings

  • Structural differences and inconsistencies in both systems

  • Differences in enumeration/synthesis

  • Differences in main religion auxiliary table

  • Differences in common auxiliaries


Project stage 2
Project: Stage 2

  • Map general religion topics at facet level


Facet mapping
Facet Mapping

202.2 Humankind 2-18

Including atonement 2-185.35, creation of humankind 2-181.5, repentance 2-185.33,

salvation 2- 185.5, sin 2-185.3,

soul 2-183.5

Class here comprehensive works on karma 2-182

. . .


Project stage 21
Project: Stage 2

  • Map general religion topics at facet level

  • Map branches, divisions, sects

  • Test top-level browser

  • Map Islam at detailed level in conjunction with UDC expansion and DDC Arabic translation


Summary and recommendations
Summary and Recommendations

  • Framework based on UDC’s Class 2 is feasible as optional arrangement, browser, and future structure for 200 Religion in the DDC

  • Initial UDC Class 21-29 notation can be used to reposition corresponding religions in the DDC

  • Mapping topics in religion at the facet level will result in improvements to DDC and UDC, and will foster interoperability between the two systems
