      6. Classification scheme in Library of Congress and NML schemes for
      cataloging materials about acupuncture.
      The major classification schemes are oriented to Western healing
      modalities and do not provide adequate subclassification of Oriental
      healing modalities.
      It is proposed that an elaboration of significant classification
      numbers be established as a guideline for classification of these
      materials. These would be suggestions, not requirements and would or
      would not require retrofiting of existing collections, depending on
      the choice of individual libraries. These would be intended as
      helpful guidelines at least for new materials added to the collection.

      Proposed schedules:(there is room here for changes and alterations)
      W class NML
      WB369 General works, including acupuncture therapy
      WB369.5 Special topics, A-Z, e.g.
      A17 Analgesia
      E2 Ear
      WB371 Cupping, counterirritation
      (See separate email for complete WB369 schema)

      RM class LC
      RM184 Acupuncture, general works
      RM184.1 Laws and legislation
      RM184.2 Manuals and textbooks, e.g. Deadman
      RM184.3,4 Unassigned, open to local interpretation or needs
      RM184.5 Points, Meridians(current LC practice)
      RM184.6 regional designation, e.g. K7 Korean acupuncture
      Korean Acupuncture
      RM184.7 Acupressure
      RM184.8 Five Elements
      RM184.9 Special topics, A-Z, e.g.
      .C9 Cupping
      .H5 Hand, limbs, etc
