Rhonda,
We class our documentary films in LC, but not our feature films. In
either case, all are shelved alphabetically by title. As the cataloger, I
find not assigning an LC classification number saves time in both
cataloging and processing. We're a 1 person operation (me!) so time is
important. As a cataloger and reference librarian, I wish we had continued
to classify by LC for both, but the circulation department won!
Cheers! Beth Hansen
