In this project the goal is to use algorithms to predict classes of the library classification system “Basisklassifikation” (which can be translated as basic classification). A library classification system is a taxonomy of predefined classes that represent disciplines, subdisciplines, themes or types of publications. Subject librarians assign one or more of these classes to each publication, allowing both final users or retrieval system to use this annotated information for finding publications. As input data we observe mainly bibliographic data, such as for example the title, the name of the publisher, the year of publication and the language of the publication. The algorithms should suggest several classes, which are then analyzed by
