Colon classification (CC) is a system of library classification developed by S. R. Ranganathan. It was the first ever faceted (or analytico-synthetic) classification.

The publication of this book is a significant contribution to the field of Library and Information Research, largely because
of the lack of relevant textbooks on this subject at the tertiary level. The book consists of contributions from well-known
LIS researchers in Africa, six of whom are based at the University of Botswana. All nine chapters are well-written, clearly
setting out basic LIS research concepts, though with examples that have an African flavour.
