We have pretty much the same circumstances mentioned by Sally below. I,
too, would have been happier if I had inherited an LC-classed collection,
but our closed stacks and the idea of a retrospective re-class of
thousands of items points to keeping this system in place for the
forseeable future. Good luck!
