NH Classification Schedule for Artistic Photography

Faculty want the artistic photography books with the rest of the art books? Class NH is an alternative to the way LC handles these materials.
The NH schedule is designed for the classification of photography books of an artistic nature. It was initially compiled for the 4th edition of N, which was issued in 1970. When the Library of Congress rejected the proposed subclass for art photography, it was published by ARLIS/NA in 1974. NH has been adopted by a number of libraries with strong collections of artistic photography as an alternative to TR, which emphasizes the technical aspects of photography.
