FYI...Library of Congress' Cataloging Distribution Service Web site
New to the Library of Congress' Cataloging Distribution Service Web site, Classification Web is software that speeds the process of verifying and assigning Library of Congress classification numbers to library materials. It allows the user to view a full-text class schedule display of the data and hypertext links within and between classes and subclasses. Search and navigation tools enable the user to perform key word and phrase searches across all classes, or narrow a search to a single subclass or caption. The software is being featured as a pilot, and may be offered as a subscription service in the future. To view the pilot, go to www.loc.gov/cds.
