dc.description.abstract Argues that classification, and more specifically the subject approach to documents, seems to be the most practicable arrangement for books as well as catalogue entries on on-line catalogues. Classification systems are important bibliographic tools for subject indexing in a library. A classification system consists of three essential components namely schedules, notation and index. The OPAC is an on-line catalogue which allows the user to gain access to the information system without the help of a mediator. The OPAC allows more search facilities and in-depth searches such as keyword searches in any field. It is also easier to manipulate a search when using the OPAC than was the case with the traditional catalogue. Subject access via class numbers, browsing of class numbers (combined with title or subject heading) and the use of class numbers as a pivot, results in a higher relevance during searches. The classification principles of bringing together related documents and entries, and showing the relationship between subjects, are equally important in today's catalogues (such as the OPAC) as they have been in the past. The conclusion is drawn that bibliographic classification is still useful in the modern library and in on-line catalogues. en
