Adding personal notes in Class Web

Classification web, LC’s online service to browse and search the Library of Congress Classification tables, has some great tutorials to help you get the most out of Class web. One that I learned about the other day is how to add Personal Notes.

-Go to Class web log in page at: http://classificationweb.net/Menu/index.html.

-At the bottom left of this page, make sure that the Manual log in is selected. If you see Auto Log in on the page, that means that the manual log in has been chosen. If you see Manual log in, Class web has been set for auto log in; in this case, click on Manual log in. (!!!This will only work when you log in manually and have an Administrative password (this is the one that comes with the account) and not a read only password).

This page is set for Manual Log In.

-Click on Browse schedules or another of the options to get to the manual log in page.

-Search for the Classification number you are looking for or browse. For example, E339. After the Heading for this Classification Number you will see a string of hotlinked letters in blue in brackets.

[H R B S L N]

The last letter, N, is for personal notes. When you click on this, a window will appear and ask you to insert any note you want for that particular classification number.

-If you have one log in for several people, this means that everyone with that log in will see the note. This can come in handy for certain local policies that might be in place.

-For the full explanation and a step by step guide, go to Class web’s tutorial page.
