1Minter, C.: Systematic or mechanical arrangement? : Revisiting a debate in German library science, 1790-1914.
In: Libri. 67(2017) no.3, S.193-203.
Abstract: This article examines changing views on "systematic" or classified shelf-arrangement in German library science from Kayser's 1790 work Ueber die Manipulation bey der Einrichtung einer Bibliothek to the 1914 Versammlung deutscher Bibliothekare in Leipzig, at which Georg Leyh delivered the seminal paper, "Systematische oder mechanische Aufstellung?" Systematic arrangement was, with few exceptions, held up as an ideal throughout the nineteenth century; but by 1914 it could be agreed to belong to a past era in which, in the words of Leyh, libraries ran as a "Kleinbetrieb" [small business] (Leyh 1913, 100, "Das Dogma von der systematischen Aufstellung II-IV." Zentralblatt für Bibliothekswesen 30:97-135). In particular, this article seeks to explore how changing views on the ideal of systematic shelf-arrangement in German library science during this period reflected evolving conceptions of librarianship. For nineteenth-century writers such as Ebert, Molbech, and Petzholdt, systematic classification and arrangement had meaning against the backdrop of an encyclopedic tradition within which libraries and librarians played an important role in organizing and presenting a rational overview of the universe of knowledge - an overview that was to be both physical and intellectual. The waning of the ideal of systematic arrangement at the turn of the twentieth century was associated with a sense of loss, as an intellectual or "scholarly" tradition of librarianship was seen to give way to more utilitarian and "bureaucratic" expectations. The changing fortunes of the ideal of systematic arrangement in German library science between 1790 and 1914 may be seen to illustrate how progress and loss are often inextricably linked in the history of libraries and librarianship

2Minter, C.: "Liberating the responsibility to think for oneself" : the Warburg Institute Library Classification.
In: Knowledge organization. 35(2008) no.4, S.192-208.
Abstract: The unique classification of the library of the Warburg Institute in London is the subject of this article, with regard to the implications for the organization of knowledge in this library. To emphasize its underlying pedagogic ethos, which played an important role in shaping the classification's structure, the classification is analyzd in its appropriate library-historical context. The development of the classification in the early 1920s, the arrangement of the stock over four floors, and the classification's structure of and within classes; are related to the implications of this structure for the organization of knowledge in the library. Finally, discussion of the classification's structure and its implications is combined with discussion of its pedagogic "mission" with the aim of establishing how the classification and shelf arrangement are intended to have impact upon users of the library.
