Abstract [en]

The aim of this Master thesis is to investigate the similarities and differences between a traditional and a new classification scheme. Two classification systems are compared, "The Swedish Library Classification System" the SAB-system - and Yahoo!. The SAB-system has been used in Swedish libraries since the beginning of the 20^th century, and Yahoo! has been online since 1994. Yahoo! has a Swedish version of its international original, which is used in this study to get a similar starting point with the SAB-system. The method used for this is a content analysis, which in this case is not a quantitative analysis. Instead it is based on the content of the systems and analyses how the systems are built. The analysis is concentrated to two selected parts of the systems, Geography and Linguistics. An introduction to classification theory and classification systems is the base of the analysis. A review of the structure of the whole systems are made and afterwards a thorough review of the structure of Geography and Linguistics. My results are that the biggest difference is that Yahoo! has alphabetical order and the SAB-system has systematic hierarchical order.
