Classification of Resources

Universal Decimal Classification System (UDC) is the scheme used to classify resources in the Library. This is a British Standard (BS 1000M) which is used mostly in special Libraries for the organization of subjects. Numbers from 0 to 999 are representing subjects.

Broad Subjects (0 - 9)
Specific Subjects (001 - 999)
More Specific (Micro Level) Subjects (001.01 - 999.99)

Under this classification, each subject area is represented by a number. This number is called "Classification Number".
