"Pat, Is this the most current 200 Religion Class?  and this is the one more comprehensive than the one found in our "Classification Guide"?  Not permissible to print this, right?"

"I see you have your answer, but in our library, I would probably have put it in the same place as the other books on autism.  For a small library, I think it can make sense to bend the Dewey system just a bit at times."

"We have been using LibraryThing for years now too, and I love it.  Like any program it has its bugs, but overall we've been very, very happy with how easy it is to use, the price, and the customer service. When we first began using it, we…"

Card Catalogs

I have been reading "old" Q & A's and came upon a section about physical card catalogs.  (This Q & A was from 2010!)  My question is:  our small church library is not automated.  Would you advise keeping the card catalog?  I don't think anyone uses it except the two workers who actually create and file the cards.  And it does take a lot of work...which I don't mind if it is used.See More

"At the Library of Congress, I found the subjects:  1. Austistic Children, 2. Service Dogs, 3. Memoirs.  For the Call Number I would use:  920.--- (plus the first 3 letters of the author's last name.)"
