Law Classification and Cataloging for Federal Librarians

DAY ONE
Forms of Legal Materials and Electronic Classification Tools

In the morning, a select faculty of the Library of Congress
Library and Cataloging Directorate will introduce the variety of
forms and formats of legal materials. Presentations will highlight
organization and updating, cataloging standards, utilities (OCLC
and RLIN), and cooperative efforts (PCC, NACO, SACO).

The discussions in the afternoon will review types of technology
support. Presenters will demonstrate two major Library of Congress
electronic toolsthe online version of USMARC format for
Classification and the CD-ROM version of CLASSIFICATION PLUS that
links classification and subject headings in one database.

DAYS TWO AND THREE
Bibliographic Description and Library of Congress Law
Classification

The morning of the second day addresses bibliographic description
of monographic or serial legal materials with an emphasis on
access points, the relationship of main entry to classification,
jurisdictionality, and uniform titles. The afternoon discussion
offers an overview of the Library of Congress Law classification's
conceptual structure, underlying principles and patterns of "Class
KZ: Law," and its relationship to the political and social science
classes. Presenters will address the main organization of the K
Class by regions and jurisdictions and the subject hierarchies and
form divisions.

The third day begins with a focus on "Class KF: Law of the United
States" (supported with CLASSIFICATION PLUS demonstrations) and
"Class KDZ and Class KG-KH: Law of the Americas, Latin America and
the West Indies." Finally, presenters will explore "Class KZ: Law
of Nations," with emphasis on international organizations (e.g.,
NATO), treaties, alliances, and public issues such as
environmental law or natural and maritime resources.
Demonstrations of Web access to online classification will
accompany these presentations. At the last session of the day,
small groups of participants will apply the classification
schedules for a class critique.

DAY FOUR
Subject Headings

Presenters will offer intensive instruction in the organization
and use of Library of Congress Subject Headings and the Subject
Cataloging Manual, including policy and practice issues. With the
help of participants will practice constructing and assigning
legal headings and law-specific subdivisions. Group exercises will
review the use of headings and the manual, followed by a group
critique. Finally, the presenters will introduce participants to
legal serials and the problem of "seriality." The Institute
concludes with an "Open Forum" attended by selected faculty.
