Documentation System for the Organization of Government Publications Within a University Library.
The system, designed as a result of this study provides for a separate collection of government publications, with a single country-based notation scheme which makes it possible to display the publications on the shelves in a manner conducive to browsing. The document code number not only establishes the shelf position of each publication but links the actual publication to a unified index scheme which provides access through a variety of data elements--personal and corporate author, title, serial and series title, etc. In addition, this study shows that mechanization or automation is an important environmental factor which should be considered when studying any university library system or subsystem.
