Using the Library of Congress Classification H Schedule

Date: May 2, 2012
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Description: This webinar will cover some of the more complex aspects of using the "H" schedule to create classification numbers, including use of various kinds of tables, special topics, and subdivisions for industries and trades.
Learning outcomes: At the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:

- Shelflist according to the Regions and Countries Table
- Use internal tables to subdivide by local geography, or firm name
- Apply external tables to subdivide by geography, form, time period, or subject

Who should attend: :The presentation is geared toward catalogers with some experience using the "H" classification, and thus will not cover basic skills.
Prerequisites: Use of Classification Web is not required, since classification numbers will be constructed manually, based on the printed schedule and tables published by the Library of Congress. Examples will be shown using the Class Web "Standard Browser."
