Title: Classification research no longer a toddler (Depth classification 47)
Authors: Ranganathan, S R
Issue Date: Sep-1963
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: A stock-taking paper. Traces the slow emergence, during the last fifty years, of a discipline of library classification with its own fundamental laws and with its own vista of research. Describes the sixth decade as making the toddler stage in the development of research in classification. Evaluates the advantages of the separation of work in the Idea Plane and the Notational Plane, and of basing classification on some postulates for each plane. Brings out the versatility of a mixed notation and of providing for Empty and Emptying Digits. Refers to the pilot projects for depth classification in progress. Looks forward to the emergence in the eighth decade of the need for solo research as well as team research in classification, as in all traditional subjects.
