1Steele, T.D. ; Foote, J.B.: Reclassification in academic research libraries : is it still relevant in an e-book world?.
In: Cataloging and classification quarterly. 49(2011) no.1, S.14-32.
Abstract: This article examines whether academic libraries are still reclassifying materials, how they are doing so, and if the acquisition of electronic materials has an impact on reclassification efforts. An online survey was sent to the heads of cataloging units at libraries belonging to the Association of Research Libraries to answer these questions. Almost one-third of libraries are currently involved in reclassification projects. Most respondents reported they do not believe that purchasing e-books has affected their decisions about reclassification. The article also examines the faceted search capability of next-generation catalogs and their possible impact on patrons' use of classification.
