In this paper we describe Generalized One-sided Concept Lattices (GOSCL) as facet-like structures. Facet-like structures occur in many computer science disciplines as some hierarchical structures. GOSCL constitute from (objects, properties) pairs known as the formal concepts. The hierarchical structure of formal concepts, ordered by the generalization and specialization among the concepts, forms a concept lattice, which represents a concept hierarchy where each node represents a subset of objects with the corresponding set of properties. The paper focus on GOSCL model for facets and discusses some graphical representations of faceted systems based on this model.
