Thinking about classification: a CILIP CIG workshop

Date: June 28, 2017

Where: CILIP HQ

Classification is a fundamental part of library and information work, but rarely gets the same attention as its cataloguing cousin.  Not only does classification tell us where to place a physical or electronic resource, it also organises knowledge itself.  This workshop offers an opportunity to think about and discuss the broad concerns of classification theory and practice, without focusing on any one particular scheme.

Each session will offer an equal quantity of talks and hands-on activities, including “Classification speed-dating”, “Classification elevator pitches”, “Classification scheme ethical analysis” and “Reclassification group problem-solving”.

Guest speakers include Prof. Vanda Broughton (Emeritus Professor, UCL) and Dr Aida Slavic (Editor-in-chief, UDC). The workshop will be led by Deborah Lee (Senior Cataloguer, Courtauld Institute of Art, and PhD student, City, University of London) and Anastasia Kerameos (Serials & e-Resources Librarian, BFI).

We are delighted to be able to offer two sponsored places.  For further details, including application deadlines, the programme, fees and to book please visit  https://www.cilip.org.uk/cataloguing-indexing-group/events/thinking-about-classification.

    Hi there,
    I am very proud to be a member of this group but I have not benefited from various opportunities offered by the group as a result of my geographical location. I will be glad if these events(workshops, seminars etc.) are conducted through webinar such that members who are unable to be physically present can participate or attend.
