Abstract:
Over 45 years ago it was decided to move the class 4 for Language to the section 8 together with Literature. Since then class 4 has not been used. A recent master thesis at the school of librarianship in Boras , â UDC, A Proposal to Basic Class 4â by Fredrik Hultqvist, (Magisteruppsats; 2006:39) proved the possibility of moving Medicine from the section 61 to the empty class 4. This is not a new idea, but has never been implemented. Reasons are given to support this proposal, based on the need to find a better collocation of the subject while at the same time providing a solution for shorter notations.
