Chinese Library Classification to Be Revised

The office of the Chinese Library Classification held a new year party on January 25, 2008. About 10 members of the editorial board and other 5 guests from the publisher and from the National Library of China attended the party.

The first edition of CLC was published in 1975, and the fourth edition was published in 1999. The fifth edition is expected to be published in 2009.

The participants talked about the recent revision advances, and proposed suggestions for CLC-related issues.

After the restructuring of the National Library of China at the end of 2007, the office of CLC has become a section of the Chinese Acquisitions & Cataloging Department. That is why I chaired the new year party, although I am not a member of the editorial board.
