The book looks at major library classification schemes in use in Europe, UK and the USA, and includes practical exercises to demonstrate their application. Importantly, classifying electronic resources is also discussed. Classification in Theory and Practice aims to demystify a very complex subject, and to provide a sound theoretical underpinning, together with practical advice and development of practical skills. Chapters concentrate purely on classification rather than cataloguing and indexing, ensuring a more in-depth coverage of the topic.covers the latest Dewey Decimal Classification, 23rd editionprovides practical advice on which schemes will be most suitable for different types of library collectioncovers classification of digital resourcesexplores recent developments in digital resources and tagging
