Dr. Ranganathan, the father of Library Science of India, promulgated the practical approach to cataloguing, i.e. "Classified Catalogue Code" which is used in libraries and is being taught in B.Lib.Sc. and M.Lib.I.Sc. as a Practical paper. In fact, Classified Catalogue Code is an Indian system and proved more accurate, precise and explanatory to the reader's choice.
Dr. Ranganathan's book has been the basis of the present book A Practice-Handbook of Classified Catalogue. It is an exact and detailed exposition of practical cataloguing and covers books and periodicals both that are commonly purchased or subscribed in all libraries -- Academic, Public and Special. Beginning with an introduction to the concepts of Classified Catalogue, Typography, Document and Arrangement, the book includes in its wide spectrum a detailed explanation of Entry aspect of cataloguing -- well illustrated with practical examples that render help in having a comfortable, genuine and firm grasp of the subject. Practice Exercises provided in the book further facilitate the students of the subject in self-assessment.
It is hoped that the book would be an asset for those interested in library science. It will be highly useful to the teachers and students and practising librarians who are engaged in learning and working in cataloguing field.
