Abstract

The Experiences of National Library of Iran in Developing of the Indigenous Tools of Cataloguing and Classification

One of the most important functions of National Library of Iran is to develop key Indigenous tools for subject access e.g. thesauri, list of subject headings and adaptations of classification schemes, to enable indigenous peoples to retrieve information and to facilitate education of cataloguing and classification for indigenous students of library and information science in Iran. In this paper, indigenous tools of cataloguing and classification have introduced in subject access area. These tools have categorized in two sections: "Subject indexing" and “Classification schemes”; Next, the methodology of developing indigenous means and tools are presented in detail. This may help developing national libraries to come familiar with our innovative methods. The experience of National Library of Iran has shown that this is difficult but possible and useful.
