Authors: Wilkins, George A.
Abstract: There is an urgent need for the revision of the Universal Decimal Classification for Astronomy (in class 52) for use in libraries and information retrieval systems. The author has drafted a revised and much extended schedule for UDC 52 with the aim of making it compatible with The Astronomy Thesaurus, which now also needs updating. Further assistance from astronomers and astronomy librarians is, however, required if the revision of UDC 52 and the corresponding updating of the Thesaurus is to be completed satisfactorily without further undue delay.
