Title: Depth classification (2) Demonstration (I)
Authors: Ranganathan, S R
Issue Date: Mar-1954
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: [Demonstrates the application of an expressive, analytico-synthetic scheme of classification to the depth classification needed in documentation work. An article from the Library Association record is taken as the" Guinea- Pig". Its CC Number is constructed. The following steps are demonstrated: (I) Facet analysis in the idea plane; (2) Analysis into rounds and levels; (3) Formation of schedule for a non-enumerated facet, with the aid of the canon of mnemonics; (4) Sharpening of a focus enumerated in the schedule, with the aid of canon of mnemonics; (5) The synthesis in the notational plane; and (6) The application of Chain Procedure to arrive at Subject Headings. UDC number is also constructed to demonstrate the limitations due to its being enumerative in the core and analytic synthetic only in the periphery. The co-extensiveness of class numbers with subject and the lengths of CC and UDC numbers are compared.
  The use of symbolic meta language given in Pp 248-249 of the Depth: classification (1953) ed. by S.R. Ranganathan is also slightly demonstrated.]
