This is a classification system along the lines of the better known Linnean system for biology. The Collier system starts from the more general consideration of living or not living, whether it is whole or part of a whole, where the thing was found, purpose, colour and shape (and more).

The collection link offers up the more unusual juxtaposition of things with almost pronounceable names such as Nelifrag Tablelectro yelolineshini(unlik) which is an electronic resistor in other quarters or one of the pointers from a clock, Nelipart Machapplistabscratch blakepointisharpotherlik.

You get the idea.
