Nature of Entries to be Filed 

We have noted that catalogue entries are either word entries or notational entries. In a dictionary catalogue they are word entries. In a classified catalogue they are both word entries and entries under Class Number or Call Number notation. Ranganathan's Classified Catalogue consists of two parts-alphabetical and classified. The alphabetical part is the word entry part and the classified part is the notation entry part. 

Even in the alphabetical part of a classified catalogue or in a dictionary catalogue, sometimes, we come across numbers or symbols as entry element, For example, the name of the author may be given in symbols like. 

7 0 7 

etc., or the title of the work may not be in words but may be in numerals or symbols 

Eg.  100 Most Important People

  1. Shelf list; 
  2. Classified Catalogue; and 
  3. Dictionary Catalogue. 

Filing of word entries is known as 'Alphabetization' and filing of numerical and/or symbol entries is known as classified arrangement.
