Reclassification: The Tusculum Way.
Citing economy as the primary reason for the conversion, the library of Tusculum College began to switch its system of classification from Dewey Decimal to Library of Congress (LC) in the summer of 1973. This paper chronicles the first 12 months of that project: decisions concerning the order of reclassification, rearrangement of the collection, policies to be followed, workflow pattern, and acquisition of essential supplies and equipment. Cost statistics for labor, supplies, and equipment are given for the period June 1, 1973-May 31, 1974, during which time 18,752 volumes were reclassed at an average cost of $.95 per volume. A bibliography of sources which helped the college's reclassification effort is included. (Author/JD)
