Classification column in vol. 29, no. 4 of Technical Services Law Librarian

Ms. Goldberg addressed classification questions she had been given before the session. These questions were on various parts of the K schedule which even advanced catalogers have difficulty with. One question posed was “the Refugee question.” In a project re-classing JX4292.R4, Refugees, the question is – where do these books go?
