Canadian Parks Service classification system for historical collections: R61-2/15-1E-PDF

"The CPS classification system has revolutionized artifact management in recent years. This system's nomenclature makes it possible to categorize all of the artifacts in our historical collections on the basis of a thesaurus of over 6,000 keywords drawn from our cataloguing records. It uses as its basic reference the classification system developed by R.G. Chenhall, Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging. Being a second-generation tool, with all of the advantages that entails in comparison to other existing tools, the CPSclassification system is more than a theoretical instrument. It is the foundation of our automated collections management system »--Introd., p. 5.
