28 TO THE EDGE OF DEWEY: CLASSIFICATION AT THE NASSAU LIBRARY SYSTEM

29 Michele Zwierski Database Manager, Nassau Library System

30 TO THE EDGE OF DEWEY: CLASSIFICATION AT THE NASSAU LIBRARY SYSTEM MEMBER LIBRARIES Michele Zwierski, Manager Cataloging Services/Nassau Library System Dewey Breakfast ALA Annual Conference June 27, 2015

31 WHO WE ARE The Nassau Library System is a cooperative library system Consortium comprised of 54 member libraries and a Service Center for the libraries Each member library is independent, autonomous, supported by local taxes, and governed by its own board of trustees Innovative/Sierra ILS

32 CATALOGING AT NLS Member Libraries order and receive materials at their local libraries Provisional bib records created Automatically through the Acquisition process Keyed in by Member Library staff Item records created by Member Library staff

33 CATALOGING AT NLS NLS-Cataloging Services (3 professionals, 4 copy catalogers) Replaces all Provisional records with full cataloging records Creates original cataloging records Authority work Catalog 3,000 to 5,000 titles per month (10% original)

34 CLASSIFICATION AT NLS Cataloging Services leaves any Dewey that resides in any bibliographic record Original catalogers add Dewey numbers to copy cataloging bib records (non-fiction, all formats) that are lacking 082/092 Original catalogers assign Dewey numbers for all original cataloging bib records (non-fiction, all formats)

35 MEMBER LIBRARY CLASSIFICATION Many materials come in Shelf Ready 082/092 is a suggested number Member Library staff can accept or reject Call numbers are keyed in manually into the Call No. field of the Item Record

36 CLASSIFICATION CHALLENGES/SOLUTIONS Vendor supplied processing truncates or misassigns call numbers, resulting in invalid numbers. Member Library staff: All numbers reviewed and validated No numbers reviewed and validated Some libraries opt to have some materials not fully processed (call no. ranges, audience)

37 CLASSIFICATION CHALLENGES/SOLUTIONS Most Dewey complaints about: Travel Shakespeare Native Americans

38 CLASSIFICATION CHALLENGES/SOLUTIONS Dewey not spine label-friendly Leads to non-dewey options for the narrowspined Children s materials Non-print materials

39 CLASSIFICATION CHALLENGES/SOLUTIONS Dewey is old-fashioned or not patron friendly BISAC Local classification schemes developed for browsing Music CDS ; movies ; etc.

40 CLASSIFICATION SOLUTIONS Select shorter numbers At segmentation Abridged Dewey Local modification of Dewey Pick a number; local sub-arrangement Dot-less Dewey

41 CONSULTANT ROLE IN TRANSITION Any straight non-dewey solution is labor intensive Relabelling ; editing item records in catalog Shelf space Non-Dewey solutions require local documentation and training Sometime the easiest solution is the best

42

43

44 DEWEY NO DECIMAL Head of Children s disappointed in the low circulation of non-fiction materials Saw an opportunity to showcase effectively Other departments in the same library discarded Dewey in favor of browsingcollections (media) resulting in patron happiness

45 DEWEY NO DECIMAL Entire non-fiction children s collection relabelled; all item records corrected. Children s room staff re-labelled over 10,000 items Master list created and maintained by department Fiction materials not included!

46 SELECTIONS FROM MASTER LIST J 613 SELF HELP Babysitting Behavior Behavior Consideration Behavior Cooperation Behavior Courage Behavior Honesty Behavior Patience Diversity Diversity Disabilities Feelings Feelings Anger Feelings Confused Feelings Happy Feelings Jealousy Feelings Lonely Fitness Fitness Yoga Friendship J 796 SPORTS Archery Baseball Baseball Teams* Basketball Basketball Teams* Biking Boating Bobsledding *Initial of team not author J 599 MAMMALS Anteaters Antelopes Apes Apes Chimps Apes Gorillas Apes Orangutans

52 ADVICE FROM ME (THE CONSULTANT) Think about the work involved in maintaining the newly organized collection Document the classification Update the classification Correct the classification Materials will never arrive Shelf Ready Classification will never be assigned by anyone else except YOU Any ILS based collection evaluation tool might only work successfully with Dewey

53 ADVICE FROM THE FIELD Spend a little more time developing list before plunging into reclassifying Label books outside AND inside All departments have to be trained in finding materials in the re-organized space Signage is the best promotion

54 Questions? Libbie Crawford Dewey Product Manager Caroline Saccucci Michele Zwierski Dewey Program Manager in the U.S., Programs, Law, and Literature Division Database Manager, Nassau Library System
