In this presentation, Alexander Mayhew explores Phylomemetic Cataloguing - A type of user-driven cataloguing that incorporates concepts from fields as diverse as Biology, Philosophy and Literary Theory. In a Phylomemetic Catalogue users would be able to add memetic relationships between records using semantic triples. Learn how these relationships can be visualized as family trees of related texts, capturing user perceptions of the descent of 'textual memes'.
