Workshop #2: BISAC Overview Over Lunch

Presenter: Karen Boehning


Unlike the Dewey Decimal System which categorizes related knowledge
systematically, BISAC is an alphabetical list of categories from
Antiques and Collectibles to True Crime.  Each of the 50 subject areas
has nearly 100 sub-categories each.  BISAC (Book Industry Standards and
Communications) is a system adapted from the book industry.


Karen will provide information on BISAC or subject groupings in
libraries, and how it might work with SirsiDynix Symphony and the Dewey
Decimal System.


Karen Boehning is Technology Coordinator at the Winnefox Library System.
