A Classification Scheme for Adult Education. Education Libraries Bulletin, Supplement Twelve.
Greaves, Monica A., Comp.
This classification scheme, based on the 'facet formula' theory of Ranganathan, is designed primarily for the library of the National Institute of Adult Education in London, England. Kinds of persons being educated (educands), methods and problems of education, specific countries, specific organizations, and forms in which the information is presented comprise the characteristics by which the adult education literature can be divided. Guidelines are furnished on cross-references, use of basic alphabetical notation and the country numbers in classification and subject cataloging, placement of reference and theoretical works, and the handling of such marginal subjects as sociology, psychology, community development, and the mass media. Suggestions on adaptation of the scheme for other adult education libraries are also made. This document is also available from the National Institute of Adult Education, 35 Queen Anne St., London W.1, England for five shillings. (ly)
