Round Three: Using WebDewey and Understanding Dewey Decimal Classification

The third round of my WebDewey DDC eCourse will be starting in the first days of November. If you’re interested in joining me to learn all about DDC over four weeks, please check out the registration form at the ALA Editions website. If you don’t want to think about DDC over Thanksgiving week here in the U.S., no worries–we’re taking that week off and finishing the course in the first week of December.

I’m excited about the improvements I’m making to the course materials for this round. All the exercises, instructions, and readings are being thoroughly reviewed and revised as necessary.

For the any of you out there taking time to read this blog, I thought I’d share the pdf of my newest course handout: Searching for Dewey Numbers in the Library of Congress Online Catalog.   This instruction sheet is either evidence of the sad little world of technical expertise I inhabit, or it boldly waves the flag of Fully Unabashed Cataloger Geekery. At any rate, it’s better instruction on the 082 searching functions than the Library of Congress itself provides. Enjoy.
