1Subrahmanyam, B.: Library of Congress Classification numbers : issues of consistency and their implications for union catalogs.
In: Library resources and technical services. 50(2006) no.2, S.111-119.
Abstract: This study examined Library of Congress Classification (LCC)-based class numbers assigned to a representative sample of 200 titles in 52 American library systems to determine the level of consistency within and across those systems. The results showed that under the condition that a library system has a title, the probability of that title having the same LCC-based class number across library systems is greater than 85 percent. An examination of 121 titles displaying variations in class numbers among library systems showed certain titles (for example, multi-foci titles, titles in series, bibliographies, and fiction) lend themselves to alternate class numbers. Others were assigned variant numbers either due to latitude in the schedules or for reasons that cannot be pinpointed. With increasing dependence on copy cataloging, the size of such variations may continue to decrease. As the preferred class number with its alternates represents a title more fully than just the preferred class number, this paper argues for continued use of alternates by library systems and for finding a method to link alternate class numbers to preferred class numbers for enriched subject access through local and union catalogs.

In: Classification research for knowledge representation and organization. Proc. 5th Int. Study Conf. on Classification Research, Toronto, Canada, 24.-28.6.1991. Ed. by N.J. Williamson u. M. Hudon. Amsterdam : Elsevier, 1992. S.351-364.
Abstract: The last several years have seen the evolution of prototype systems exploiting the use of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) as an interface to online catalogs. One such system, calles DORS (Dewy Online Retrieval System) was developed at the University of California, Los Angeles by the authors. The feature distinguishing this system is an automatically generated chain index, in particular the algorithms that were created for its automatic generation and the problems that were encountered. The problems were of three kinds: those that were overcome, but were not for lack of time and resources and those that we believe cannot be overcome. The paper concludes with suggestions for future resaerch and possible formatting changes to the DDC feature headings that would facilitate chain-index generation
