A question I've been meaning to post for ages -- how do people teach LCC in their introductory course? Or do you? DDC is at least manageable, but LCC! We could spend the entire semester just working on that. I hate to not at least expose the students to it, but since most of the students are not going to be full-time catalogers and most will be working in school or public libraries, at times I wonder if the time wouldn't be better spent going into greater depth on authority control, DDC, or LCSH.
Your thoughts, experiences, suggestions?
