Introduction to the Topic Maps Paradigm

Book Chapter, by Michel Biezunski

This chapter gives an introduction to the Topic Maps Paradigm.

The World Wide Web enables us to create virtually unlimited quatities of information and to make it immediately available to the world. We do not suffer from lack of information availability, but we do have a ahrd time trying to locate the information we really need. Finding aids are therefore becoming highly desirable. Topic Maps provide a standard approach to creating and interchanging finding aids.

Nowadays Topic Maps appears to be very suitable for being applied in Libraries, Archives and Museums. It provides a suitable model and mechanisms for depth indexing, classification and the implementation of FRBR, CIDOC-CRM or other conceptualizations.
