Seminar, held in The Hague on 4-5 June 2007 are now available from
The event was entitled "Information Access for the Global community"
and its aim was to explore the latest developments and applications
of the Universal Decimal Classification. The Seminar brought together
UDC publishers, editors of the scheme and UDC users and offered an
opportunity for information exchange and discussion of future developments.
There were around seventy participants from over thirty countries
including librarians, subject specialists, editors of national
editions of the scheme, university lecturers, researchers and LIS
students. The conference programme included eleven invited talks on
the topics of user experiences and applications, innovative
approaches in UDC use and UDC education and training (for the
programme, talk abstracts, presentations, see:
http://www.udcc.org/seminar07/programme.htm ). Papers will be
published in the forthcoming issue of Extensions and Corrections to
the UDC, in November 2007.
The UDC Consortium announced that this successful seminar would be
the first in the series of similar events it plans to organize in the future.
