PLANNING AND ORGANISATION:

The major items of work are classification and cataloguing. They are of a highly  technical nature and accuracy is the very essence of all technical processing work. It has been suggested by Ranganathan that in libraries, especially large libraries, it will be a good policy to prepare at lest two copies of the catalogue to facilitate  use by the readers on the one hand  and by the  classifier and the cataloguer on the other. In other words, one set of the catalogue should  be in the Technical Section. This catalogue is described by some as "Official Catalogue". 

Factors in Planning:

The distinctive work of the Technical Section is to be planned with reference to the following factors: 

•  Classification 

•  Cataloguing 

•  Preparation of the volumes for public use

•  Correction of call numbers and catalogue entries 

•  Binding 

•  Classification and cataloguing codes 

•  Catalogue cabinet
