1Satija, M.P.: Book numbers : Indian and Cutter.
New Dehli : Viva books, 2008. 132 S.
Anmerkung: Rez. in KO 36(2009) no.1, S. 61-62 (K.P. Singh): "Although not much is currently being written on book numbers, Dr. M. P. Satija has published many books and journal articles on the topic, as his bibliography attests (p. 124-129). Book numbers are important for library shelf arrangement of print publications and certain electronic ones. They are also essential for the sub-arrangement of documents within a given specific class. Biographies, classics and their associative books, literary books, translations and sequels pose special problems for designing book numbers. There are many book number techniques and systems, five of which Satija examines. C. A. Cutter (1837-1903) devised tables for author names. Despite having been designed for Western names in Roman script, Cutter's tables are used all over the world. Many locally-designed systems have adapted Cutter's method to different languages. To overcome these limitations, S. R. Ranganathan (1892-1972), the father of library science in India, conceived, in his characteristically global-minded manner, a universal system diametrically opposed to Cutter's method. By all accounts, Ranganathan's system of book numbers is scientific, comprehensive and applicable, irrespective of the language of the book. Satija critically examines all aspects of the Ranganathan system at length. Highlighting the Indian contribution to book numbers, Satija provides the most comprehensive treatment of this Indian system written so far. Satija also examines the systems of S. Bashiruddin (1982-1984) and Asa Don Dickinson (1876-1960). Bashiruddin imagined a system of author numbers mainl for books in Indian scripts-namely Hindi and Urdu-, but he also proposed a similar method for English names. Dickinson devised a long table for Indian names based on Cutter's method, which Satija reproduces in full. A further chapter, rich in examples, is devoted to the author table developed in 1961 by the National Library of India at Kolkata. Although the Cutter author tables are explained, they are not reproduced. These tables, however, are easily available. Book Numbers: Indian and Cutter is divided into short chapters enriched by appendices and many examples. Each system is prefaced by a brief biography of its designer. The seven-page introduction presents the definition, purpose and history of book numbers. The last chapter addresses the meaning and use of full call numbers indicating the place of the book in the library. Focusing on Indian systems of book and author numbers, Satija's Book Numbers complements American publications such as Donald J. Lehnus' Book Numbers: History, Principles, and Applications and John P. Comaromi's Book Numbers: A Historical Study and Practical Guide to their Use. Its language is lucid, and the bibliography running from 1916 to 2007 is useful for further studies. The high production quality of this short book can easily be compared to any international standard. Book Numbers: Indian and Cutter is a timely reminder that book numbers still have their utility. It will thus be very valuable to librarians and students in library science."

2Satija, M.P.: Book numbers in India with special reference to the author table for Indian names designed and used by the National Library of India.
In: Knowledge organization. 34(2007) no.1, S.34-40.
Abstract: A book number takes shelf arrangement of documents to a point where classification per se cannot. Class number alone is not able to uniquely individualise a document on the library shelves. The function of a book number starts from where that of the class number ends. An author number also brings together all the books by one author in one specific subject. A chronological book number will clearly portray the development of a subject over a given period. Book numbers are indispensable for a shelflist. The National Library (NL) of India at Kolkata has a collection of about 3 million documents. For organizing its contents it uses the DDC and the shelf arrangement is by Cutter's three figure author table. For Indian names it uses its home-made author table described here. Though the National Library table is designed especially for Indian names across all religions and regional cultures, vet its use outside the National Library has not been reported mostly due lack of marketing. Since 1961 the Indian cultural names have undergone many changes. The need is to revise and update the table to reflect the current culture and new authors across India.
