A Classification Scheme for Textbook Collections in Teaching Materials Centers.
Adams, Dee Dee; Cristan, Anita
The classification scheme for textbooks in the Education Library at the University of Texas at El Paso is described in this report. The scheme, developed to allow quick retrieval and yet give consideration to time and expense, is in card format, and (1) divides textbooks into Elementary (K-6) or Secondary (7-A); (2) further divides into general subjects; and (3) subdivides alphabetically by publisher, grade level, and edition. The format has been in use for one and a half years and is considered successful. A guide to the scheme is attached, including descriptions of guidelines for cataloging textbooks, call number building and examples, and tables on textbook numeric subject classification and textbook subject classification.
