HILCC: A Hierarchical Interface to Library of Congress Classification : a project report on the development of an operational prototype LCC-based subject interface.

Davis, Stephen P.

This paper describes a project, undertaken by Columbia University Libraries in 1997, to develop a system for the automatic generation of browsable, web-based, subject-oriented presentations of our electronic resources by mapping LC classification numbers present in catalog records to a hierarchical subject vocabulary derived from the Library of Congress classification schedules.
