National Library of Serbia joins UDC Consortium
In 2019, the National Library of Serbia joined the UDC Consortium. The NLS is one of seven national libraries who are members of the Consortium.
In collaboration with other libraries in Serbia, the NLS is currently preparing a new Serbian UDC edition to be published on the UDC Online Hub.
New data in UDC Online English
UDC Online English has been updated with the new UDC Master Reference File data (MRF12). This includes changes to around 6,000 classes (over 2,000 new classes, 3,000 modifications and over 700 cancellations).
Notable changes are in language tables (Romance languages, African languages), place tables (Central America, Antarctic territories, Scandinavian countries, Russian Federation), mathematics (algebra) and biology (invertebrates, algae, fungi).
New UDC Master Reference File (MRF12) Released
UDC MRF12 was released at the end of December 2018. It contains changes published in two double-issues of the Extensions & Corrections to the UDC: 34-35 and 36-37. The new UDC MRF now consists of around 72,000 classes and it brings changes to over 6,000 classes.
UDC MRF is distributed under licence. The standard set of distribution files consists of XML, text, and ISO (for CDS/ISIS) exports. MRF12 is the last UDC MRF version distributed with an ISO file.
