Birth Centenary Literature on Ranganathan: A Review
Discusses the books and articles written in observation of the centenary of S. R. Ranganathans birth. There were nine books published for the occasion, and six special issues of journals. In addition there were articles about Ranganathan in at least 10 other periodicals. Of all his writings and ideas, it seems that he lives on primarily through his classification studies and his scientific method. His efforts in cataloging, reference, and selection were not prominent in the centenary literature.
