In response to recent trends towards automated bibliographic control, this issue of "Drexel Library Quarterly" discusses present day bibliographic classification schemes and offers some insight into the future. This volume contains essays which: (1) define "classification"; (2) provide historical background; (3) examine the Dewey Decimal System, the Library of Congress Classification, and the Universal Decimal Classification; (4) discuss research and development of automated systems; and (5) make predictions for the future.
