Relationships of information resources: an attempt to interdisciplinary synthesis

Helena Kučerová
Summary: The relationships among the information resources (being specified in the broadest sense for the purpose of this study, as documents, data, but also as persons, things, concepts, terms, processes, events or services offering information) are topics of interest for numerous disciplines and their problems are addressed in many fields of information practice. However, the research and the solutions tend to be implemented in an isolated way within a certain discipline or some specific activity, each of them applying a different point of view. This study is a result of an effort to summarize the theoretical principles of the relationships that are formulated by particular disciplines, and to carry out their synthesis and application upon the field of information resources. The text of the study is divided into three parts. The first part provides a general definition of relationships, characterizes the ways of their expression and reviews their properties. The second part offers a selection of significant contributions examining the relationships from various fields: semiotics, semantics, linguistics, terminology and computer science. The third part provides an overview of the taxonomies of relationships in the information science and proposes a novel draft of framework taxonomy, applicable to relationships of information resources, along with suggestions for further research....
