Classification System for a Multi-Concept Slide Collection.
Dyki, Judith
A classification system for a 40,000 slide collection of Wayne State University campus architecture, activities, people, and events, and the surrounding Detroit area is described. Classification categories are defined and a primary code is assigned for architecture, people, events, themes, and special presentations. A secondary code indicating division (i.e., Wayne State University, Detroit, out-of-state) and a tertiary code for all architecture slides of the campus to indicate their specific location may also be assigned. A system of file cards supplements the information presented on the slides themselves. Implementation of this new classification system, which was experimental on 60 slides initially so that any deficiencies could be discerned, indicated that there may be some problems with backlog, circulation procedures, and slide storage. The appendices include the classification schedules, file card subject headings, and abbreviations used in the classification codes. (MBR)
