Abstract
Many libraries undertook reclassification projects during the 1960s and 1970s, and some of them are still struggling to live with split collections due to lack of resources to complete their projects. The University of Kentucky Library is one that has reconciled itself to this predicament until plans begin to take shape for a new library building. An automated local system, NOTIS, presents new found capabilities to perform automated reclassification efficiently and cost-effectively. Retrospective conversion of all Dewey titles will precede reclassification. The paper describes how the decision was made, the planning that is in place, the method to be used, and the issues that need to be resolved before the project is implemented. It is hoped that other libraries may find this helpful should opportunities arise for a reclassification project.
