Assig 2b – Subject access: classification January 3, 2013

Filed under: ETL 505 Bibliographic Standards in Education — emilysmum @ 7:29 am

This assignment involved using DDC23/WebDewey in conjunction with section 3, Classification in SCIS standards for cataloguing and data entry to create SCIS standard classification numbers for 10 items.  Again, a great deal of lead up work on this one in practice exercises and activities, huge activity in the online forums, and I think, for a lot of us, a desire never to have to purchase and classify any items relating to Italian vioin music of the seventeenth century or collections of Russian speeches from the seventeenth century to the twentieth century (translated into English)!
