Abstract: Classification should not be matter of imposing arbitrary structures, but a means of thinking about ways of organising collections to suit user needs. Discusses possible approaches for multimedia collections in public libraries, e.g. treating documents on all types of supports as a single entity or using centres of interest, devised to circumvent the limitations of the traditional use of decimal classification. The need to maintain awareness of local limitations is demonstrated from the example of a media centre which based collection organisation on the structure of interior space, extending over 4 levels - thus determining locations for formats such as books, records and videos. To counteract the wall effect of shelving, showcase lighting has been used but this is proving to generate excessive heat. All in all, whatever system is used, the basic necessity is to ensure that it does not create needless barriers for people wanting to use the collections
