  UDC: Structure
Like the DDC, the UDC is based on the decimal system: every number is thought of as a decimal fraction with the initial point omitted, and this determines the filing order, but, for ease of reading, it is usually punctuated after every third digit.
In UDC, all recorded knowledge is treated as a coherent system, built of related parts, in contrast to a specialized classification, in which related subjects are treated as subsidiary even though in their own right they may be of major importance.
The UDC is a synthetic classification, which means that the enumerated classes are the building blocks whereby compound and complex classes may be denoted by the various synthetic notational devices (such as -,=,+,/).

 About the Universal Decimal Classification
UDC has been modified and extended over many years to cope with the increasing output in all disciplines, and is still under continuous review so as to take account of new developments.
In UDC, the universe of information (all recorded knowledge) is treated as a coherent system, built of related parts, in contrast to a specialised classification, in which related subjects are treated as subsidiary even though in their own right they may be of major importance.
UDC has always been a major international scheme, but now that the UDCC has created an international (and eventually multilingual) database, it can be developed with the maximum of consistency and efficiency, and is more than ever the reflection of an authoritative international consensus.

 [No title]
The UDC Consortium was established as a non-profit organization which maintains and distributes the UDC and financially sustains itself with a consortium membership fee, by selling the UDC Master Reference File (MRF) licence, and by limited publishing activity.
UDC publishers may choose to offer and contribute with a new improved vocabulary, extended functionality, subject-alphabetical index or thesaurus but this will not have an immediate influence on the existing users.
Finally the UDC Consortium was approached for additional information on the number of languages for which a translation licence was requested in the period 1990-2004 and this information when checked confirmed the existing data on the number of languages.

 1995 UDC proposal
This unreliability and inconsistency greatly contribute to the illegitimacy of UDC in the eyes of the student body, and should not have to be redressed by administrators upon appeal.

Requiring UDC to review its punishments in previous cases relevant to a present charge, as well as requiring them to write an Ôopinion' or Ôreport' after each case to add to the body of precedent, would add greatly to the consistency on the decisions.

 98-05: Additional definition of field 080 (UDC)
The separate subfield for Common auxiliary subdivisions is needed because in UDC there are no "main" numbers for concepts that occur in, for example, the Common subdivisions of form.
In UDC no auxiliary is attached to a main number without some kind of facet indicator, such as bracket, inverted comma, hyphen, etc. They therefore all stand as separate entities, rather than being built onto a main number connected by 0 as in DDC.
Each element in UDC is, as a general rule, a separate, identifiable entity and can be readily identified from its notation.

 UDC Scholarships
To enhance UDC’s American Dietetic Association-accredited Nutrition and Food Science Program, and at the request of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), in 2001 CECHE established an annual nutrition scholarship program at the university’s Nutrition and Food Science program in the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences.

In response, UDC’s Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences anticipates starting an internship cum master’s program in nutrition and dietetics (with emphasis on public policy, communication and clinical experience) to comply with the recommendations of the Commission on Dietetic Registration’s task force, which requires a graduate degree to become a registered dietitian.
