The Project

Roux Library started the reclassification project in 2004. Since that time, we've converted the entire DVD and Reference collections to the Library of Congress Classification (LC) scheme.

At the moment, we are working on the General Collection. We have completed sections A-D and sections T-Z. We are  finishing up the "P" section which includes books on literature, and we are starting work on sections N and M which are art and music. During the entire process, books will be continuously moving from one location to another as we make room for the relabeled books. All new books added to the system are in LC.
