Classification experts and librarians have long recognized the potential of library classification systems to improve resource description and discovery, yet it has taken the growth in Internet content to provide the motivation and opportunities for more fully exploring the information organizing capabilities of these schemes. One search system that uses a library classification system to facilitate access to Internet resources is OCLC's NetFirst database. NetFirst is an Internet index intended for libraries and library users. Professional editors create NetFirst metadata records (resource descriptions) which include informative abstracts, Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) numbers and Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).
