Three Classification Schemes for Use in a Judaeo-Christian Theological Library: A Comparative Study.
Deffenbaugh, James T.
The classification scheme of the library of the Union Theological Seminary in New York, the Library of Congress Classification, and the Bibliographic Classification of H.E. Bliss are analyzed and evaluated regarding their comparative effectiveness for use in a theological library. All three systems are or have been in use in at least one specialized theological collection. Among criteria chosen for judging the effectiveness of the schemes are notation, hospitality, specificity, directions for use, index, and updating. On the basis of these standards, the LC Classification system is judged to be the most useful. (Author/JAB)
