Decimal Classification and ColonClassification in Perspective

Kamal Dogra (Author)

While colon classification continue to influence library and information science, the scheme is not widely used in libraries. It gained a foothold recently in India but it never was the most commonly used scheme in India. Its critics claim that the scheme is better suited for classification was also criticized because of major changes from one edition to the next. This not only added a burden of retrofitting to the libraries that used the scheme, but it also gave the international community the impression that Colon classification was a work in progress rather than fully functioning scheme. Most importantly, critics have long maintained that the Colon classification notation and code numbers are simply too complex to gain acceptance from average library patrons. Despite its bleak future as a modern, living standard for classification, colon classification continues to have great influence in the library world. This book explains the decimal classification and colon classification in perspectives. This book will bring new insights in the field of decimal classification and colon classification.
