Sorry, I'd also meant to include a short bibliography of some Faceted
Classification information, more than just the Wikipedia page. These
first two are pretty helpful,

   Faceted classification and logical division in information retrieval
   Library Trends, Wntr, 2004 by Jack Mills

   Grounded Classification: Grounded Theory and Faceted Classification
   Library Trends, Fall, 1998 by Susan Leigh Star

and to a somewhat lesser extent:

   Classification and categorization: a difference that makes a difference
   Library Trends, Wntr, 2004 by Elin K. Jacob

   The Role of Classification in Knowledge Representation and Discovery - 1
   Library Trends, Summer, 1999 by Barbara H. Kwasnik

This may to many people be Much More Than I Want to Know.
