Classification and cataloguing policy, Other Management

Classification and Cataloguing Policy:

Whatever may  be the scheme of classification or catalogue code chosen, a policy should  be formulated for their application. Some  of the issues on which policy decisions should be taken relate to the following: 

  • Broad vs close classification. Whether classification should  be coextensive with the thought-content of the document or whether it should be broad, i.e., the extent or depth to which one must go in assigning class numbers. 
  • Whether cataloguing should be descriptive or simplified or  selective. The number of main and added entries to be prepared per document or book should be decided. 
  • Whether variations to suit local requirements can be made. 
  • Whether the catalogues should be in Card Form or Ledger Form. 
  • If in Card Form, whether it should be handwritten or typed. 
  • If in Ledger Form, whether it should be handwritten or printed. If printed, can it be made accessible to other libraries and users? 
  • It is better to decide on these issues in the beginning itself as it would be difficult to change course in midstream.
