Library material arrangement:

Irrespective of the category to which a library belongs, collection of a library is first broken into  sequences. Depending upon the size of a library  collection may be arranged only under two sequences-  books and periodicals- or  more than two sequences.  Once the  material has been grouped by sequence the question of arrangement on shelf comes up. The arrangement of library material will include:
