This implementation guide is an integral part of Redesigning the Academic Library Materials Budget for the Digital Age: Applying the Power of Faceted Classification to Acquisitions Fund Management. It provides a step-by-step description of the redesign process from a traditional hierarchical budget to a multidimensional faceted budget schema. Detailed examples from The Claremont Colleges Library (The CCL) illustrate one possible practical implementation of the schema and explain the reasoning behind some of the decisions we made. This guide also includes insights into the operational use of the schema in allocating acquisitions funding, producing reports, and projecting future needs for library budget requests.
