Abstract

 This study aims at the construction of a semantically structured conceptual model to help the organization and representation of human knowledge in hypertextual systems, based on the Theory of Facet Analysis and Conceptual Map. A second step in this study is the application of the semantic model to create a prototype called Hypertext Map (Mapa Hipertextual - MHTX) which will be used to implement the BTDECI – UFMG (Thesis and Dissertation Library of UFMG´s School of Information Science). Facet analysis was used to categorize the index terms, and established the relationship among them expressed by the links. It was chosen a single knowledge unit, namely a doctoral thesis on the own area of subject analysis (NAVES, 2000) to construct a conceptual model prior to the technological implementation of its prototype..
