Fundamentals of Library of Congress Classification

November 19-20, 2008, 8:30-5:00

Oregon State University, Corvallis


Lori Robare, University of Oregon

Richard Sapon-White, Oregon State University

Sponsored by the Technical Services Roundtable of the Oregon Library Association

This two-day workshop provides authoritative standardized training in
the principles and practices of Library of Congress Classification
(LCC). The course includes background on the development and structure
of LCC and on the elements that make up a call number, as well as
guidance in shelflisting practice and the use of essential tools.
Emphasis is on basic skills and on application of LCC in areas most
often used by generalists, including a special focus on schedules H, N,
and P. The workshop concludes with a session on local decisions and on
proposing new class numbers through SACO.

Target audience: The course is designed to cover basic skills.  It will
be useful to those who are new to classification using LCC but who have
some basic knowledge of cataloging and the MARC 21 formats.  While not
designed to cover advanced or specialized topics, the course will also
be a useful review for experienced catalogers, especially those who
supervise or train other catalogers.
