Present and Impending Developments Based on Actions by LC. Subgroup 1; Interim Report. Appendix 1.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Library.
Changes made at Library of Congress (LC) are considered and analyzed for their impact on the library at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The four LC changes analyzed are (1) the adoption of the International Standard Bibliographic Description for monographs (ISBD(M) ); (2) desuperimposition (the return to use of the smallest, rather than the largest, element of organization as the first part of an entry); (3) proposed changes in LC subject headings; and (4) the use of LC classification at UCLA without modification. The advantages and disadvantages of these changes are discussed and charted against seven areas of impact--catalog, shelving order, library user, library processes, serials, automation, and opportunity for and value of consistency. Comparisons of UCLA and LC classification numbers are included, along with letters from library staff opposing the use of unmodified LC numbers. (LS)
