Title: Depth classification (I) Abstract classification
Authors: Ranganathan, S R
Issue Date: Mar-1954
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: (Estimates the versatility of DC due to its decimal fraction notation and of UDC due to its provision for peripheral facets and phases. Traces the failure of UDC to its rigid DC core. Mentions the establishment of a grammar of classification. Explains the factors leading to the emergence of CC and its versatility due to its being analytic-synthetic from the very start. Describes the recent establishment of the concepts of fundamental categories, rounds and levels of their manifestation, zones of arrays and optional facets as aids to depth classification. Shows how this amounts to the starting of work on Abstract Classification. Emphasizes that classification can keep pace with the universe of knowledge only if work on Abstract Classification is intensified.)
