|Title:||Classification in reference service|
|Authors:||Coates, E J|
|Abstract:||[Makes out a case for the correlated teaching of classification and reference service. Points out the limitation of memory and subject specialization in efficient reference service. Intellectual handing is shown to be easier with the facet-analysis of CC than with DC. Shows the advantage of the sameness of patterns in all subjects brought out by the concept of the five fundamental categories of CC. Testifies to the advantage experienced by the B B from the pattern of CC. Describes the route to be followed in locating relevant materials, by chain procedure, in generic, co-ordinate and collateral subjects. Estimates the advantage of classified catalogue based on a good scheme of classification, over a dictionary catalogue. Mr. Coates, F.L.A., is Chief Subject Cataloguer of the British National Bibliography.]|
