with apologies to nlm ;-)

we have modified the nlm classification schedule to  fit our consumer
health library - we use the nlm system, but we have renamed the major
subject headings to reflect lay language eg.

QU    VITAMINS
QV     HERBS  AND DRUGS  (note: although the nlm catalogs
some            herbals in wb as well, we have classed all our books and
videos that deal   with herbs in this section, as we find our patrons
find it easier to have the material all in one place, and our collection
is small)
QW    GERMS
QX     BUGS
QZ     GENETICS AND CANCER
WB     ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE AND PHYSICAL THERAPY(note: this is the
widest departure from the nlm  terminology.. we looked at the materials
we had purchased in our initial collection and discovered most of the wb
titles dealt with complementary or alternative approaches to medicine)
WC    INFECTIONS
WD    ALLERGIES (once again, when we looked at what our collection
represented, most of the wd section dealt with allergies)
WE    BONES AND JOINTS
WF     LUNGS
 WG    HEART
WH    BLOOD
 WI    GUTS
WJ    MEN'S HEALTH (AND KIDNEYS)
WK    DIABETES (same note as with allergies)
WL    NERVES & PAIN
WM    EMOTIONS
WN    IMAGING
WO    SURGERY
WP    WOMEN'S HEALTH
WQ    PREGNANCY
WR    KIDS
WS     SKIN DISEASES
WT    AGING
WU    TEETH & GUMS
WV    EAR, NOSE & THROAT
WW    EYES
WX    HOSPITALS
 WY    NURSING
WZ    HISTORY & HUMOR
