An Alternative System of Subject Classification for Media Libraries.
Since an alphabetically arranged newspaper clipping file often separates those items which should be together, a classified system would be more useful in a newspaper library. The system used at the "Dayton (Ohio) Journal Herald" is based on major categories numbered 1-100, with related items in proximity. Subdivisions are provided by adding letters from a to z, with some letters retaining the same value in all categories. For example, "a" stands for a general file and "r" for research. In addition to the subject file, other files can be grouped to include living and dead personalities and foreign countries. Alphabetical and numerical lists of subject categories are provided, along with a miscellaneous subject list and directions for processing newspaper clippings. (LS)
