The J.D. Williams Library uses the Library of Congress (LC) classification. Like the Dewey Decimal classification system, LC is used both as an unique identifier for each book in the library and as a way to group books with similar subjects together on the shelves.

Note the similarities and differences in the two classification systems in theFile Size: KB. The database was originally compiled by Hal W.

Classification of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror I. OBJECTIVE. Please use this policy to classify works of science fiction, fantasy, and horror in PZ 4, separately from other works of literature in the LC schedule. This includes works about these genres.

The Library of Congress Classification arranges materials by subjects. The first sections of the call number represent the subject of the book. The letter-and-decimal section of the call number often represents the author's last name.

And, as you recall, the last section of a call number is often the date of publication. example: Figure 1.

The Library of Congress Subject Headings encompass topics within the genres of fantasy and science fiction in a variety of media. The following list may be useful in locating critical/historical books and other secondary materials in the Cornell Library Catalog.

Works of science fiction use scientific fact and theory as the basis for their plots, world-building, etc., and this is what separates them from other genres. Library classification, system of arrangement adopted by a library to enable patrons to find its materials quickly and cataloging provides information on the physical and topical nature of the book (or other item), classification, through assignment of a call number (consisting of class designation and author representation), locates the item in its library setting and, ideally.

Rearranging your library fiction by genre can reinvigorate your collection, help students make new connections with reading and resources, and be a catalyst for active promotion of the library.

Traditionally, fiction in a library is arranged by the author’s surname from A to Z. Another approach. At the Porter Henderson Library, books are shelved according to the Library of Congress (LC) Classification system.

Each book in the library has a unique “call number”, which is a combination of letters and numbers. A call number is like an address; it describes the exact location of the book and tells you where to find the book on the shelves.
