What is the Library of Congress Classification system? 

The LCC classification system was originally developed by Herbert Putnam with the advice of Charles Ammi Cutter in 1897 before he assumed the librarianship of Congress.  Today it is the system of library classification used by most research and academic libraries in the U.S. and several other countries.
