Library of Congress Classification System

Library of Congress is a classification system used to:
  • Give each book a location -- an address where to locate the book
  • Locate books on the same subject in the same part of the library

LC Classification system was devised to provide order to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. The library of 1.5 million volumes was moving to new quarters in 1897. Melvil Dewey (of the Dewey Decimal System) refused to allow any alterations to his system. Consequently, a new system was created and letters were used as the first defining element. Classification was based on "literary warrant" -- if Library of Congress had books on a topic, a place in the classification was created. --Topsy Smalley
