      Zaytseva, Ekaterina (UDC Consortium, 2010-12)
      In Russia the most widely used library classifications are the national scheme BBK (Library Bibliographic Classification) and the UDC. The Russian National Public Library for Science and Technology is the leading scientific and technical library in Russia. It has a long tradition of classifying literature according to the UDC which started back in 1963. For many years the Library provided support for classification by UDC and also assisted in the areas of research and information while also acting as a supervisor in the matter of indexing for the network of scientific and technical libraries of Russia and the USSR. The paper describes the use of UDC in the environment of the electronic catalogue and the automated library system.
