Scarecrow Press, 2002 - Music - 162 pages
This volume is designed to introduce the principles of music classification to beginning music cataloguers, as well as to non-specialist cataloguers and others who deal with music materials only occasionally. The book's purpose is to relieve the stress level for general cataloguers with no special background or knowledge of music by providing some practical guidelines in the classification of music materials and to clarify and explain the most commonly used classification systems in the United States: the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC); the Library of Congress Classification (LCC); and the Alpha-Numeric System for Classification of Recordings (ANSCR).
