Array of the Books and Periodicals

1.Array of the Books

The books are set off according to languages in the first storeroom, next, they are grouped by classifying numbers. (The classifying method adopted in the first storeroom is specialized for small-and-middle-sized books.) Then they are arrayed by numbers of the authors. (For books in Chinese, numbers of the authors use the four-cornered code; for books in Occidental languages, follow the Cutters Alphabetic-order Table.) The classifying numbers and the numbers of the authors combine to be the searching numbers for getting a book. A certain searching number corresponds to a certain kind of book(s). In the second storeroom the books are set off according to the classifying method adopted by the Library of CAS in which the orders of the books are represented by Arabic numerals. The books in different languages are placed in different areas. Then they are arrayed by numbers of the authors. (For books in Chinese, numbers of the authors use the four-cornered code; for books in Occidental languages, follow the Cutters Alphabetic-order Table.) The classifying numbers and the numbers of the authors combine to be the searching numbers for getting the books. A certain searching number corresponds to a certain kind of book(s).

2.Array of the Periodicals

The current periodicals are taken off and bound up after being displayed in the reading room for one year. Then the bound editions of the periodicals are deposited into the storerooms. In the first storeroom they are grouped by languages, then are arrayed according to classifying numbers of the periodicals. (The classifying method adopted here is specialized for small-and-middle-sized books.) Note: periodicals in Japanese are arrayed together with those in Chinese. In the second storeroom the bound editions of the periodicals in Chinese and those in Occidental languages are arrayed respectively. The former part is done following the order of Chinese words, whereas the later part, is done alphabetically.

P Mathematics, Physics and Chemical
Q Geology and Geography
R Bioscience
S Medicine and Hygiene
T Agro-technology
U-Y Technology
Z The Integrative Books

Following the conceptual relationship among the subjects step by step, a more special, more idiographic items can be reached. For example, the classifying number of the item “World Physical Geography” is “Q951”? The way how to get it from the top down is indicated as bellow:
Q Geology and Geography
Q9 Geography
Q95 Physical Geography
Q951 World Physical Geography

Following the Classifying Method of Small-and–middle-sized Books, cataloguers of the library give each kind of book(s) a certain classifying number. So, the books of the same item are arrayed together, being convenient for users to get them according to a certain item.
