Title
Reclassification in an automated environment

Abstract
For a variety of reasons, reclassification was a popular project in libraries in the 1960s. Although such projects have faded from the limelight, some of the reasons for doing them remain valid today, i.e., a need to cut processing costs, participation in cooperative ventures, the inconvenience caused by working with a collection split between two classification systems, and continuing changes in the Dewey schedules. This article compares the steps needed for reclassifying in a manual environment with those required when the library has an in-house computer system. The comparison shows how using the latter makes a reclassification project more feasible than it would be in a totally manual library. The article also discusses various issues associated with reclassification in an automated environment such as the problem posed by a frozen public catalog and the combining of reclassification and conversion projects.
