New Features

This page introduces the new functionalities in and changes to WebDewey Deutsch which have been added since the introduction of the application (2012). Based on the American WebDewey by OCLC, the classification application is today also used in other countries (such as Italy, Norway, Sweden) and in other languages, and is adapted to the local work processes. Thus there may be features which are specifically designed for the use case of a particular country, but also extensions that all WebDewey user countries can benefit from.

DDC updates and update notification in WebDewey Deutsch

(June 2016)

Since the end of June 2016 there has been an additional area in the GUI which allows users to search for DDC updates and also provides a personalised notification function for new updates in WebDewey Deutsch.

Functional scope

  • Notation field subscription: Users can store notation fields and other standard search criteria in the personal settings (accessible via Settings in the link bar, top right).
  • DDC update notification: Once a user has logged in, the system automatically searches for newly added updates; the number of these is shown in brackets behind the UPDATES button.
  • Detailed search criteria: There are various other narrowing options in addition to exact date and notation searches (from/to), e.g. particular class type (table numbers, schedule numbers, add table numbers, manual numbers), alteration types (new, deleted, changed), alteration places (captions, notes, Relative Index terms, etc.) or notation types (standard edition numbers, built numbers, etc.).
  • Presentation of search results in short and detailed views: The short view provides a quick overview of the search results, the detailed view provides a before-and-after view of all changes in the class (including Relative Index changes).
  • Sorting options of the search results by notation and date (descending/ascending)
  • Project numbers: Bundled display of DDC numbers in cases where there is a thematically related update in several classes, such as an update in table 1, which has implications for classes in various subject areas in the schedules.
