dc.description.abstract <p>In Fall 1995, CyberStacks(sm), a World Wide Web (WWW) virtual library, was created to investigate the applicability of using an outline of the Library of Congress classification scheme (LC Classification Outline 1990) as an organizational framework for enhancing identification, access, and use of Internet resources (McKiernan 1995). Although still in development, CyberStacks(sm) has become a de facto Science and Technology Reference collection, with links to several dozen individual, institutional, and organizational homepages on six continents. In addition to using a standard library classification scheme, CyberStacks(sm) has also adopted a variety of conventional and 'neo-conventional' methods for facilitating efficient access to Web resources (McKiernan 1997c). Its extensive Title Index, a working file of candidate titles for future incorporation within its collection, and its Cross-Classification Index, an alphabetical listing of the subcategories associated with each incorporated resource, irrespective of its specific location within the Library of Congress classification category, are representatives of these two types of features.</p>
