Dewey available on CD-ROM

Library Systems Newsletter [January 1993]

Forest Press OCLC will publish a CD-ROM version of the Dewey Decimal Classification (20th Edition). ELECTRONIC DEWEY will feature online search and windowing techniques, full-text indexing, a personal notepad, LC subject headings linked to DDC numbers, and a data base that includes all the latest DDC changes. Users can view and browse headings displayed in the context of the DDC hierarchy and see a sample cataloging record for the most frequently occurring subject heading associated with a classification number.

Along with the compact disc and system software, the ELECTRONIC DEWEY package contains a User Guide which explains and illustrates the use of the software in the context of Dewey. Also included are a Set-up Guide, which provides information on installation and setup, and a Quick-reference Guide. There also is a set of hands-on exercises.

For libraries that do not have the necessary equipment, an ELECTRONIC DEWEY workstation will be available at a special price of $2,450. The workstation includes ELECTRONIC DEWEY plus a standalone Wyse 386sx/25 personal computer, an internal Hitachi CD-ROM drive, and a color monitor.
