This report describes a prototype tutoring system, currently under development, whose purpose is to provide practice for students of subject cataloging. The system is designed to provide practice problems for students and to provide analyses of their mistakes, particularly when the mistakes are thoughtful "near-misses" that differ from an appropriate response in relatively well-defined ways. The system provides these analyses by comparing what the student has provided these analyses answer with what the system "knows" about the rules of classification and the relevant attributes of the particular book in question. The prototype domains are those of literature and biography, and the tutoring system is based on the Library of Congress system of subject cataloging.
