I'm running a company who offer system administration services.
Trough the years we have bought a lot of training materials, both books and digital materials like CD's and DVD's. For about 13 years in business we have come up with a huge library mainly for Microsoft products. We have hire a temporary staff over the summer to classify the materials, record it and organize.
The trouble is what system is relevant to use? Dewey is a quite good classification but more or less the mark of the materials should be 005.62x. The UDC classification is also to complicated for a single use because the Index number can be so long. I have take a close look over the Microsoft training portal, read the exam numbers and focus on the numbers of the courses who are relevant for each certification.
I know that Microsoft have classify their software structure, for etc. is the exams code numbers for Dynamics as follow:
MB2-xxx for CRM
MB3-xxx for GP
MB4-xxx for SL
MB5-xxx for NAV
MB6-xxx for AX
After that I took a close look for the lesson numbers for each product but that didn't make any sense to me because most of the training numbers for ALL Dynamics solution start with 80xxx.
The main issue here is to come up with a system who can classify all our materials. The materials is so wide, all from CD's to data, from official training books to MOC books with a course number. I think it is best to come up with some universal classification and I think the Dewey or Library of Congress classification is the best, but also use some sub-classification for each product, and I think Microsoft have classify their software solutions with codes.
Can someone point me to a website who can give me some idea how Microsoft have classify their products so I don't need to spend time to create my own classification key?
