Reclassifying Florida State Documents: Down to the Nitty Gritty.
Blazek, Daniel
The University of Miami recently reclassified their "State of Florida" documents according to the classification system invented by Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in 1966. Using only in-house resources, the Government Documents Department of the University of Miami generated labels with printed call numbers for over 16,000 documents. This article describes the steps in the project down to the level of detailed software programming. The FAU system is noted for its excellent Keyword-In-Context Indexes, characterized by frequent updating and maintenance. For every piece in the collection, a call number had to be found or created. Once call numbers were identified, computer labels were generated and printed using Nutshell and dBase software. Two figures illustrate the conversion slip and a layout screen for data entry. (SLD)
