المنتدى الإلكتروني المجاني "BISAC and Beyond: Making Word-Based Classification Your Own"!

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته،


تقدم جمعية مجموعات المكتبات والخدمات الفنية  Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS)  التابعة لجمعية المكتبات الأمريكية  American Library Association (ALA)  المنتدى الإلكتروني المجاني E-forum بعنوان: "BISAC and Beyond: Making Word-Based Classification Your Own"، وفيما يلي التفاصيل:

Description: Many libraries are considering moving away from traditional classification systems like Dewey or LC in favor of word-based systems based on BISAC, a classification scheme used by book retailers and publishers. Reclassifying a library collection takes thought, planning, courage, and sweat. How can a word-based classification system benefit your customers? Join the conversation and talk to other libraries who have already ditched Dewey or are considering making the switch. Topics for discussion may include:

Why switch to a BISAC-based system?
* Adapting BISAC for the needs of your customers
* Planning the conversion process
* Tips, tricks, and FAQs for reclassifying collections
* Using BISAC for collection development
* Rethinking the ‘flow’ of your nonfiction collection
* Merchandising with BISAC
* BISAC and the MARC record
* Leveraging BISAC in the OPAC to add discovery points
