Abstract
After differentiating between external and internal bibliographic control, classification, as a method of internal bibliographic control of periodicals is discussed. In order to help decide whether or not to classify periodicals, the library of the University of Houston-Downtown conducted a short questionnaire survey of 33 state university libraries. Responses are analysed, advantages and disadvantages of having a classified periodical collection outlined, and it is suggested that, with the increasing popularity of library technology, periodicals need to be classified although opinion on how to display periodicals is mixed.
