Alternatives to Standard Classification and Cataloging. Guide 4: Alternatives to Classification.
Wittstock, Laura Waterman; Wolthausen, John H.
Individuals, organizations, and tribes are rapidly recognizing that libraries and the information services which they offer are necessary to meet American Indian goals. Although these goals may vary widely from improved access to education, cultural information, information on available social services, to leisure reading, they are all based in a component or institution designed to process information--a library. Fourth in a series of 11 guides developed to provide initial direction and alternatives to those planning or developing Indian library and information systems, this guide briefly discusses standard cataloging systems and several alternative systems specifically designed for Indian libraries. The cataloging systems discussed include color coding, author storage methods, and accession numbers. Classification systems covered include the Library of Congress Classification, Dewey Decimal System, and Cutter System. Commercial services for cataloging are briefly reviewed. Seven sources for additional information are cited. (NQ)
