Combined Edition of Family Planning Library Manual and Family Planning Classification.
Planned Parenthood--World Population, New York, NY. Katherine Dexter McCormick Library.
This edition combines two previous publications of the Katharine Dexter McCormick Library into one volume: the Family Planning Library Manual, a guide for starting a family planning and population library or information center, and the Family Planning Classification, a coding system for organizing book and non-book materials so that they can be easily found. The Family Planning Classification contains the coding system by which Planned Parenthood-World Population (PPWP) documents and articles are assigned a number for easy filing; an index of subjects, with the file number of each subject; and a glossary of family planning terms. The Family Planning Library manual has sections explaining: classification in general, the PPWP scheme in particular; the index; how to select books, where and how to order them; how to process them into the library; and how to set up a card catalog for books. It also has sections which explain the selection and ordering of vertical file materials (journal articles, documents, etc); the actual physical aspects of the vertical file; and how to handle journal articles in general, as well as other topics of interest to librarians.
