Dutch UDC Online Opens
UDC users in Dutch speaking countries can now access Dutch UDC schedules at UDC Online Nederlands. These are the most comprehensive UDC tables published in Dutch to date. A free two-week trial is now open and an annual subscription will be available after 10 March 2014.
UDC Online contains a complete standard edition of the scheme on the Web with over 70,000 classes extended with more than 11,000 records of historical UDC data (cancelled numbers). Around 80% of the class descriptions appear in Dutch and the remaining 20% are displayed in English (mainly on deeper levels of the subdivisions in class 5 and class 6). The Dutch translation is continuing and the remaining Dutch text will be uploaded as it becomes available.
