NCompass Live: Ditching Dewey: How we converted from Dewey to BISAC and lived to tell about it - Recorded Online Session 

Description

Parchment Community Library was encountering more and more adults who had never been taught the Dewey Decimal Classification system in school. They wanted their collection to be easily browsed, so in about 18 months, they converted from DDC to BISAC call numbers. Learn how their staff completed this challenging task "at times we felt that we were trying to draw a map while driving full-speed down the road" and hear how their patrons have reacted to the new system.

Presenter: Teresa Stannard, Library Director, Parchment (MI) Community Library.
