English abstract

Between the options for developing a search strategy, the code number or classification is by far one of the least used. This is due to the great difficulty inherent in their own classification systems. Thus, the own library automation systems do not provide a good use of these codes when developing the potential of access to information. This article seeks to show, by studying various examples of university libraries, if indeed this kind of search is disabled by the software used.

Spanish abstract

Entre las opciones para elaborar una estrategia de búsqueda bibliográfica, la realizada por número o código de clasificación es, con diferencia, una de las opciones menos utilizada. Este hecho se debe a la gran dificultad inherente a los propios sistemas clasificatorios (muy poco intuitivos). Así, los propios sistemas de automatización de bibliotecas no contemplan un buen uso de estos códigos a la hora de elaborar las potencialidades de acceso a la información. En este artículo se pretende demostrar, mediante el estudio de diversos ejemplos de bibliotecas universitarias, si, efectivamente, este tipo de búsquedas se ve inhabilitado por los softwares utilizados.
