Library of Congress Classification Workshop
Apr 5, 9:00am - 4:00pm
Library of Congress Classification (LCC) is used to classify works in many libraries, particularly academic libraries. It provides an “address” for each resource, as well as organizes resources primarily by subject. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn the meaning of each part of an LCC call number, how to construct LCC Cutters, how to build basic and more complex LCC call numbers, and how to create LCC call numbers for fiction books. The instructor will primarily use Classification Web to find and build LCC call numbers, but other avenues for finding LC classification numbers will be discussed as well. This workshop is perfect for LCC novices, as well as those looking to refresh their LCC knowledge!
Location: Broward County Library, South Regional/Broward College Library
