RESOURCES

This discussion of specific resources follows the subdivisions of the Billings Classification Schedule, classmark *K. The classes and subclasses, which indicate the shelving sequence of the books, often follow a form or chronological order rather than a subject arrangement. The dictionary catalog of the division and the Public Catalog provide the necessary subject approach.
