Elizabeth M. Moys devised her classification scheme for legal materials whilst working as a law librarian. Since her retirement from academic librarianship in 1989, she has been a freelance indexer. She was awarded the MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list 2000.
This is the latest edition of her classic reference work for law librarians, recognized as one of the best classification schemes for legal material in print. The scheme is still used in law libraries around the world and this edition will bridge a seven-year gap since the 3rd edition.
Substantial revisions made in the 4th edition include extended coverage to feature new areas, particularly the Internet. This edition has been revised and expanded by Elizabeth Moys in conjunction with a team of contributing editors, who use the scheme daily. Elizabeth Moys has also updated the thesaurus, resulting in a more comprehensive and reliable book for law librarians which will help them to classify their law publications effectively. Users are invited to join the discussion list: lis-moys-usersjiscmail.ac.uk where ideas about additions and usage are circulated.
This publication is essential for law librarians or information workers with an interest in law librarianship, especially those who already use the Moys Classification Scheme in corporate and academic law libraries.
