EDITORIAL POLICY COMMITTEE LOOKS AHEAD TO NEXT EDITIONS=20

DUBLIN, Ohio, July 23, 1999--The Decimal Classification Editorial Policy
Committee (EPC) held its 112th meeting in Washington, D.C., May 2-4.

"Meeting 112 of the Editorial Policy Committee was pivotal," said Joan S.
Mitchell, editor in chief, Dewey Decimal Classification, and executive
director, OCLC Forest Press.  "EPC explored the needs of abridged edition
users, embarked on several interim updates, and approved the first updates
for the 22nd edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification."

The three-day meeting opened on Sunday evening with an address by Joseph
Miller, editor of H.W. Wilson Company's _Sears List of Subject Headings_.
Mr. Miller presented his views on the abridged edition of the Dewey Decimal
Classification. =20

On Monday, the committee considered a report on a survey of abridged editio=
n
users by consultant George D'Elia, professor, School of Information and
Library Studies, and director, Center for Applied Research in Library and
Information Science, State University of New York at Buffalo.  The survey
was designed to gauge how well the abridgment meets user needs, and to
suggest areas in which it might be improved.  "The surveys of abridged and
full edition users provide a firm foundation for the continuing work of the
committee," said David Balatti, director, Bibliographic Services, National
Library of Canada, and chair of the Decimal Classification Editorial Policy
Committee.

EPC discussed several interim updates and editorial exhibits pertaining to
the unabridged 22nd edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification, scheduled
for publication in 2003.  The committee approved the introduction early nex=
t
year of period notation for affiliated literatures, and agreed to an interi=
m
update of Table 2-44 France in collaboration with representatives of the
Biblioth=E8que nationale de France, the Association pour l'avancement des
sciences et des techniques de la documentation (ASTED), and other
French-speaking colleagues.  The committee also approved updated versions o=
f
Table 1 (Standard Subdivisions) and 800 Literature for inclusion in the 22n=
d
edition.  It also approved draft schedule 540 Chemistry for review by
outside experts.

EPC welcomed two new members: Lucy Evans, head of West European and Open
Access Cataloguing, British Library, and Richard Baumgarten, cataloger,
Johnson County Library (Overland Park, Kansas), and reference librarian,
Longview Community College Library (Lee's Summit, Missouri). =20

At a farewell dinner on May 3, EPC paid tribute to Susi Woodhouse, the
previous United Kingdom representative; Peter Paulson, who retired as
executive director of OCLC Forest Press on Dec. 31, 1998; and Judith Greene=
,
Forest Press house editor, who retired on June 30 when the OCLC Forest Pres=
s
office in Albany, New York, closed and its functions transferred to the OCL=
C
campus in Dublin, Ohio.

The next meeting of the Editorial Policy Committee will take place on Nov.
7-9, 1999, at the Library of Congress.
