The Class Web Main Menu was redesigned several years ago, and now includes all of the links that are on the Extended Menu.  The Extended Menu is no longer being supported or maintained, and the intention is to remove it from Class Web entirely, since it just duplicates what is available on the Main Menu.  We recommend that you change your default start page to the Main Menu.  You'll find the links to the Standard, Enhanced, and Hierarchy browsers at the bottom of the Main Menu screen.

Some of us use the "Extended Menu" screen 
(http://classificationweb.net/Menu/extended.html) as our default start 
page for Class Web. There doesn't seem to be a link to this page from 
the Main Menu screen any more. The "Extended Menu" screen is still there 
though. Could we have a link to the "Genre/Form Headings" search screen 
from the Extended Headings page too? Could there also be a link to the 
"Extended Menu" screen from the Main Menu?  Thanks, Joe Collins

The initial database contains only a small number of headings that were approved at the Cataloging Policy and Support Office weekly editorial meeting on September 5, 2007.  New records will be added weekly, as they are approved and distributed.  The search screen for these records is accessible by clicking the new "Genre/Form Headings" link on the Class Web Main Menu screen.  Searches that are initiated from the "LC Subject Headings" link on the Main Menu will not retreive genre/form headings, and searches that are initiated from the "Genre/Form Headings" link will not retrieve topical headings tagged 150.
