Review quote

"I recommend this book to anyone interested in gaining a strong foundation in classification, but most particularly to those new to the topic. It also would be useful to more seasoned catalogers who simply want to see the whole picture of what classification is and does." - Technicalities "I recommend this book to instructors and students, to practicing professionals and paraprofessionals, and to selectors for libraries that support library science curricula. Ideally, this text would be used in conjunction with a wide variety of practical exercises in original cataloging and the creation of authority records." - Technical Services Quarterly
