We use LC but use 1997 for the genre Drama, and the 1995.9s for Adventure, Comedy, Horror and so on but ours is an open stacks collection. I worked for 10 years at a public library which had closed stacks by accession number and it worked beautifully.

Hello, all,

We're looking to revise our call number scheme for a growing video collection at the University of
Pennsylvania. We're considering going from LC call numbers (how many PN1997s can you shelve accurately?) to accession
numbers. This is a closed stack collection, and I wanted to ask if anyone has any other clever call number schemes or
simple filing/retrieval strategies.

Thank you in advance for any and all comments.

Cathy
