A Proposed Classification Schedule for a Curriculum Materials Collection.
Jones, Robert E.
Accessibility to the content of a curriculum materials collection is primarily determined by the simplicity of the classification scheme used to organize the materials in the collection. The classification system utilized to organize such a collection should structure and arrange materials in such a fashion that the patrons can serve themselves with ease. In order to provide the patron with maximum independence and freedom when dealing with the materials in question, it is necessary to provide both open shelving, thereby allowing browsing, and a properly constructed card catalog that affords a more direct means of access to the materials in the collection. This paper presents a classification schedule which may be utilized to organize the printed materials found in a curriculum laboratory. The schedule is designed to provide the user with maximum ease of access to the materials contained in the collection and relieves the curriculum librarian of many of the clerical routines common to the processing of new materials. The summary includes general recommendations for the application of the schedule and suggestions relating to the organization and administration of the entire collection of printed curriculum materials.
