BCS stands for Buchter Classification System and is an alternative classification system. Others include the Dewey Decimal System and the Library of Congress Classification System, to name a few.

The BCS model is also referred to as the Book Store model and groups titles in subject areas, much like how a book store is organized.

Many schools in the St. Vrain Valley School District have converted from the Dewey Decimal System to the BCS. It is a huge undertaking to convert an existing Dewey library to a BCS library.
If you want to learn more about that process please visit the BCS Blogs to read librarians actual thoughts and feelings throughout this process.
