About this title

Synopsis:

This book covers all of the major library classification schemes in use in Europe, UK and US; it includes practical exercises to demonstrate their application. Importantly, classifying electronic resources is also discussed. The aim of the book is to demystify a very complex subject, and to provide a sound theoretical underpinning, together with practical advice and development of practical skills. The book fills the gap between more complex theoretical texts and those books with a purely practical approach. Chapters concentrate purely on classification rather than cataloguing and indexing, ensuring a more in-depth coverage of the topic.

  • Covers the latest Dewey Decimal Classification, 22nd edition
  • Provides practical advice on which schemes will be most suitable for different types of library collection
  • Covers classification of electronic resources and taxonomy construction
