1Pestana, O.: Alignment in medical sciences : towards improvement of UDC.
In: Classification and authority control: expanding resource discovery: proceedings of the International UDC Seminar 2015, 29-30 October 2015, Lisbon, Portugal. Eds.: Slavic, A. u. M.I. Cordeiro. Würzburg : Ergon-Verlag, 2015. S.135-150.
Abstract: A classification scheme represents a powerful indexing and retrieval tool. Obsolete terminology and misalignment between widely used systems is key impediment to better use of classification. This paper looks into the issues caused by delay in the revision of UDC class of medical sciences and possible solutions. Following a short description of the Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) and of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Classification, the author analyses the notations and captions included in 61 class of the UDC Summary. All the classes, subclasses and special auxiliary subdivisions are covered in order to find compatible notations between both schemes, out-of-date vocabulary and out-of-date subdivisions of UDC. As a result of this study and in light of the most recent developments in medical sciences, one subdivision is questioned and several vocabulary expressions included in the caption fields are proposed to be changed or updated.

2Womack, K.R.: Conformity for conformity's sake? : the choice of a classification system and a subject heading system in academic health sciences libraries.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 42(2006) no.1, S.93-115.
Abstract: This article investigates classification and subject heading systems used in academic health sciences libraries and the reasons these systems were chosen. The study also ascertains the respective systems used at the general libraries at the same academic institutions, in order to find out if there is a desire for conformity. Specific attention is paid to the question whether a shared OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog) may play a role in this desire. The results show that 75% of the survey participants from academic health sciences libraries use primarily the NLM (National Library of Medicine) classification system and 95% use MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). General libraries at the same institutions overwhelmingly use the systems developed by the Library of Congress. The most compelling reason for the use of NLM systems is that they are considered the most appropriate for medical collections.

In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 31(2001) nos.3/4, S.341-.
Abstract: The National Library of Medicine has maintained a leadership role in the promotion of audiovisual formats for many years. An overview of the development of producing, collecting, and cataloging non-print material at NLM is provided, along with an examination of NLM current cataloging practices.

5Lopez-Mertz, E.M.: ¬The adequacy of the structure of the National Library of Medicine Classification scheme for organizing pharmacy literature.
In: Library resources and technical services. 41(1997) no.2, S.123-135.
Abstract: The NLM Classication (NLMC) scheme was developed in 1946, using basic ideas from earlier schemes developed for organizing resources in support of teaching medicine and widely used in the USA for classifying information resources including pharmacy and pharmaceutics. Reports results of a study is to examine how the structure of the NLMC accomodates pharmaceutical literature and assess its adequacy, NLMC numbers assigned to 1.979 monographs with bibliographic records were examined. Analysis revealed that the structure of the NLMC brought together 42% of the literature in the sub-class QV 701-835 while another 41% was scattered throughout the NLMC scheme. Additionally, 17% was classified elsewhere in the LCC

6Connaway, L.S. ; Sievert, M.C.: Comparison of three classification systems for information on health insurance.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 23(1996) no.2, S.89-104.
Abstract: Reports results of a comparative study of 3 classification schemes: LCC, DDC and NLM Classification to determine their effectiveness in classifying materials on health insurance. Examined 2 hypotheses: that there would be no differences in the scatter of the 3 classification schemes; and that there would be overlap between all 3 schemes but no difference in the classes into which the subject was placed. There was subject scatter in all 3 classification schemes and litlle overlap between the 3 systems
