dc.description.abstract <p>In Fall 1995, a World Wide Web (WWW) virtual library was established to investigate the applicability of using a conventional library classification scheme as an organizational framework for enhancing identification, access and use of Internet resources (McKiernan 1995). Named CyberStacks(sm), http://www.public.iastate.edu/~CYBERSTACKS/ this service has adopted an outline of the Library of Congress classification schedules as a system for indicating broad and specific relationships among selected Net resources (LC Classification Outline 1990). Since its establishment, resources selected for the CyberStacks(sm) collection have been limited to Net analogs of equivalent printed works, original Web Reference publications, as well as Internet resources which have Reference value. Almanacs, bibliographies, biographies, dictionaries, directories, handbooks and manuals are among the common types of Reference works that have been selected for the current collection. Presently, only works that can be classified within the Science (Q), Medicine (R), Agriculture (S) and Technology (T), or the Military (U) and Naval (V) sciences have been selected as candidate titles for inclusion.</p>
