Non Western Cataloging Systems
I am interested in this topic because I am unsure of how people who use langauges that use non traditional alphabets catalogue and I would like to learn more about this.

Our group will be presenting on Non Western Cataloging but I would like to focus on the Colon Classification because I think it is an interesting way to classify information. I also find it interesting that this system is primarily used in India. I plan to research the history of this system and to find why it is primarily used in India.
