Inglewood Public Library, CA.
The third edition of this work, originally published in 1971 and revised in 1972, presents a method of classifying children's multi-media materials which is designed for compatibility with the Library of Congress system for adult materials. Adapted by main classes and two-letter sub-classes augmented by one or two additional numbers when main classes and two-letter sub-classes augmented by one or two additional numbers when further subdivision is required. The classification system is supplemented by a comprehensive list of alphabetically arranged index terms. The terms are also arranged by classification so as to illustrate subject groupings of each sub-class. A chapter on suggestions and recommendations for spine labels and special collections is included. This edition reflects a revision in classification which includes the addition of 45 new letter-number subclasses. The index has been expanded and some terms dropped making a new total of 3,276 index terms. A chapter of cataloging notes, arranged by subject and reflecting five years of cataloging decisions, is new and should prove useful to the cataloger. Also included is material on the classification of sound recordings previously published separately. (Author/AP)
