BIC Standard Subject Categories

The publication last year of Book Industry Communication’s e4libraries subject category headings, a simplified version of BIC’s Standard Subject Categories scheme specifically aimed at public libraries, has attracted considerable interest and is now in the process of being implemented by Bromley Libraries. Details of the scheme can be found at http://www.bic.org.uk/51/E4libraries-Subject-Category-Headings/.

BIC would be very pleased to hear about other implementations or of potential future adoptions, so that issues relating to the scheme can be communicated to the community at large and properly addressed. Please contact Peter Kilborn (peter@bic.org.uk).
