The Bible as a Resource for Teaching Cataloguing and Classification

Vincent Enyeribe Unegbu, Uloma D. Onuoha


The Bible is an important book that represents all courses that human beings engage in. Many professions use it as a textbook for their course, as are listed in this write up. In spite of the rich source of information embedded in it, library and information professions are yet to tap into it. The first two chapters of the Bible are a very good source of the course Cataloguing and Classification (Cat. & Class.). The aim of this paper is to expose the rich curriculum content of Cat. & Class. in this book of Genesis and to use it as an example of what the Bible could offer in the teaching of Cat. & Class. and other library and information courses. It appeals to Library and Information Science professionals to use the Bible as a textbook in the course, in addition to other lessons learnt from the book of Genesis.
