The books are cataloged according to a hybrid system of international standards: Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR updated edition) and Resource Description and Access (RDA). They are then classified according to the Library of Congress (LC) Classification System. They are placed in shelving areas according to their use and content.
There are about 300 print periodicals titles found in the CLR in three DLS-CSB campuses. The loose issues of periodicals are displayed on magazine cabinets, while daily newspaper issues are placed on newspaper racks. Complete bibliographic information about the periodicals/journals are encoded and reflected in the WorldCat Discovery for easy reference of the clienteles.
