|Title:||Facet sequence and the law of parameter (Depth classification, 50)|
|Authors:||Ranganathan, S R|
Desai, A R
|Abstract:||Shows that the existing principles of Facet Sequence give in the case of the subject Pharmacology a facet sequence which satisfies the Second Law of Library Science in respect of the medical profession where it violates the Second Law in the case of the pharmacology profession. The conflict is resolved by taking into consideration the parameter reader in the two cases. In the case of the medical profession the reader is the one interested in treating a disease with drugs whereas in the case of the pharmacology profession the reader is one interested in the study of the action of the drug. A general normative principle – Law of Parameter - belonging to the family of the Laws of Interpretation is highlighted. A systematic examination of schedules of CC from the angle of this Law is suggested.|
