||A Practical Guide to Library of Congress Classification is a hands-on introduction to the LCC. The book examines each part of the LCC call number and how it is assembled and guides the reader through each step of finding and constructing LCC call numbers in Classification Web (the primary resource used to access LCC). Chapters include: Library of Congress Classification in a nutshell; breaking down the Library of Congress call number; dates; cutters; LCC in Classification Web; basic LCC call number building; advanced call number building; classifying fiction in LCC; finding and using LCC resources. Exercises at the end of most chapters give readers immediate practice with what they just learned, and answers to the exercises are provided. By the end of the book, readers will be able to build an LCC call number on their own. -- from back cover.
