BSI and UDCC announce UDC Online replacement service
30/07/2013
English speaking users of UDC will be able to access a new UDC Consortium UDC Online service from 26 August as BSI’s UDC Online will be closing from 1 October 2013. The upgraded UDC Online service offers improved searching and browsing functions and several new features such as access to cancelled numbers and alphabetical chain index.
High quality printed BSI UDC editions are appreciated by documentation specialists worldwide. In spring 2001, BSI released a web version of the English UDC schedules called "UDC Online" - the first of its kind in the bibliographic domain. BSI UDC Online was at the forefront of online classification schemes and has been serving users for over 10 years.

The new UDC Online is a part of the multilingual UDC hub-service driven directly from the UDC Master Reference File (MRF) database and run by the UDC Consortium (The Hague). The new online service has been developed to bring together and align existing translations with the regularly updated knowledge content of the UDC. The tool aims to provide a better, up-to-date and more convenient service for users world-wide. The English version will be the first edition to be made available online.

31/05/2013
Publications by UDC Consortium, including new and older issues of the Extensions & Corrections to the UDC, UDC Guide and Dutch UDC tables are now available for ordering and purchase online from our website.
We hope that credit card and paypal payments, that are now enabled for single copy purchases, will be of help to users outside Europe. The UDC Consortium plans to publish Dutch and English abridged printed editions for 2013 and 2014 and a complete English edition for 2015. Online ordering and payment will hopefully make these UDC schedules easier to obtain for our users.
