Classification is just one piece of the cataloging process. As Hugh Atkinson wrote, “Classification is necessary not just because it puts something in a particular place in the library but also because it demonstrates to the user a relationship of one kind or another.”

Over the centuries, people have put forth many classification systems.  Karen Muller in a brief but quite comprehensive post highlights  differences in use and structure of the two major Library classification systems.

Libraries as Community Publishers: How to Turn the Tables http://t.co/C1tYsCQO via @OUPAcademic #publishing #books…

“This is just one option among many possibilities available to public libraries. I am not naive about the need for a library publishing imprint to have at least a basic supporting staff at a time when budgets are tight. But it is at least within arms reach, and it provides opportunities for librarians to grow and engage in new services that have a stronger future than those dealing with analog culture. Having one foot in the community and one in the network, libraries can help define a new cultural commons.”
