Faceted Classification

Tanya Rabourn has a discussion and some links about faceted classification. Seen on LibraryPlanet.

I think there is a place for this tool in our catalogs. In the public library, there are often patrons who read in a genre. It would help them if they could click on their genre, preferred format, and year. For example, Mysteries, large print, 2002 would provide them with a list they could scan. Should be easy enough to do. The MARC record has all the info, as long as GSAFD has been used.
