Sanford Berman\'s original cataloging to be decommissioned

The list of user-centered original
subject headings created by Sanford Berman and his staff over two and a half decades
at Hennepin County Library is now going to be replaced in the catalog by
straight LC subject headings, or something close to that. In Sandy\'s
words, \"The curtain is coming down.\" He got the news on Tuesday. Sandy\'s ideas about user-centered cataloging live on in the books and
articles that he has written and in the work of the many catalogers who have been inspired by him around the world.
