A New Manual of Classification
Building upon the work of its predecessor, Sayer's Manual of Classification for Librarians, 5th ed., this new manual provides a clear overview of classification theory, policy, and practice, and provides a description of the major general classification systems. While much material is taken from the earlier editions virtually unchanged, an effort is made to make the information as current as possible when discussing work in progress today. Both US and British positions on issues are represented. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
