The Collection Development team at Anythink presented their work on WordThink at the 2009 Colorado Association of Libraries Conference on Saturday, November 21, 2009. WordThinkTM is a word-based materials classification system developed by Rangeview Library District’s collection development department to replace Dewey Decimal Classification. Patterned after BISAC (Book Industry Standards and Communications) and the word-based system used by Maricopa County Library District, WordThink organizes materials according to 45 different categories with additional subcategories. Materials are then arranged alphabetically by title.
