Abstract: Dual classification systems (Dewey and LC) and a complex floor plan presented challenges for patrons in the main campus library at the University of Florida, despite ample signage. A much needed library expansion including a new Humanities and Social Sciences Library building will make it easier for patrons to locate library materials and has offered an opportunity to consider reclassification as a means of further simplifying patron access. This poster session will provide an overview of the innovative process for collection review, de-selection and reclassification of materials we employed by quickly and efficiently using the NOTIS database, library computer network, laptop computers and Excel spreadsheets. Coordinating this library-wide project required team efforts on many fronts. To coordinate the required workflow activities the project team had to consult and involve key staff in Technical Services, Access Services, Public Services, Collection Management and Systems. The collaborative efforts of all units involved were critical to the success of the project and to meeting our deadline. The presentation highlights the purpose, scope, planning, and implementation of the project. “Lessons learned” and recommendations are instructive for other libraries considering applying new technologies to reclassification projects. Our own library has already begun applying many of the lessons learned through this project in other efforts as we shift collections to allow construction to move forward.
