    Wynar and Taylor, , p. ) A faceted structure relieves a classification scheme from the procrustean bed of rigid hierarchical and excessively enumerative subdivision that resulted in the fixed 'pigeonholes' for subjects that happened to be known or were foreseen when a system was designed but often left no room for future developments and.

The first true faceted system was the Colon classification of S. R. Ranganathan. The most useful schemes are: Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC).

General works receive numbers from tophilosophy and psychology getreligion —social sciences — Library Classification scheme Classification is a procedure of grouping similar items and objects and is essential in formulating groups that are known as classifying which results in Classification.

This process helps the user to arrange, organise and make a logical sense of articles which also assists the user to locate them in an easy manner. Faceted classification schemes designed for use in general libraries (CC and BC) are unlikely to provide a useful classification for specialised collections: they tend to be rather complicated and are not revised frequently enough to keep pace with new areas of knowledge.

A practical alternative for a library wishing to organise a special collection of materials would be to create a new classification scheme based on faceted principles. scheme of classification based on faceted principles (Classification Research Group, ), and some major part of their activities was devoted to this; ultimately the work never resulted in a classification scheme, but much of it contributed to the PRECIS indexing system developed by Austin () for the British National Size: KB.

The Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) scheme of classification was developed in the year by the Belgium Barrister Paul Otlet and Nobel Prize winner Henri La Fountaine.

The UDC is peculiar in the sense that it consists of a combination of both enumerative and faceted character of the schemes and hence it is designated as an Almost. Colon classification (CC) is a system of library classification developed by S.

Facets can be added over time as need dictates. Post-Coordination• Faceted schemes describes objects of all sorts using independent attributes. A faceted classification is a classification scheme used in organizing knowledge into a systematic order. A faceted classification uses semantic categories, either general or subject-specific, that are combined to create the full classification entry.

Many library classification systems use a combination of a fixed, enumerative taxonomy of concepts with subordinate facets that further. The general steps of classifying books are presented in the chapter and the main classification schemes and a few localized or discipline-oriented systems are listed.

faceted and analytico-synthetic. The major classification schemes are then reviewed and the chapter ends by discussing the criteria for selecting a classification scheme. Faceted classification uses a collection of independent attributes, called facets, to classify each entry in the searchable collection.

In contrast with a taxonomy that uses a single hierarchical classification scheme, faceted classification doesn’t impose a rigid ordering of attributes on the searcher.

A Single Taxonomy is Inflexible. The Classification Research Group (C.R.G.) in London has been discussing for some years the theory of documentary classification, and several papers have been published which reflect the course of the discussions (1–8).Beginning with an explicit disavowal of allegiance to any one published system, the Group has considered the well-known schemes, both general and.
