Description

"I wanna truck book!" "I need everything you have on planning a wedding." "Where are all your craft books?" "How come books on the Black Plague are in so many different places?"

Has the changing world and the internet altered the way your patrons search and ask for help? Do they find it frustrating having to go to several different shelving areas to get all the materials they want on a topic? Would you like your patrons (of any age) to have a better browsing experience?

An MCLS member library decided to make changes to their classification systems to solve those issues. In this workshop, you will hear why they decided to change, how they prepared, the process each used, and the patron reactions. If your library is dealing with the same issues, this will help you sort out the questions and find some potential solutions.

This class will be online using WebEx online workshop software. All registered attendees will receive an email with WebEx login information a few days prior to the class date.
