The present work comprises two parts: (i) Introduction to library problems concerning Indology. (ii) Select Bibliography. The First Part analyses the problems arising out of the work done in the Second Part. It surveys the Indian subjects treated in World Classification Schemes and offers a discussion on Cataloguing Codes, assignment of subject- headings, Indic names, form of the author heading, standardization of surnames etc. The Second Part: The Select Bibliography is intended to present a select and annotated bibliography comprising a more or less exhaustive survey of periodical literature on some aspects of Indology. The period under survey starts circa 600 B.C., when later Upanisadic ideas started to set and a number of items of Smrti literature appeared to expound the knotty and rigorous Sutras of the Vedas. This was the age of Vedanga, Dharma-sutras, epics, Lokayatas, Buddha and Jaina. This new trend in ideology continued without any break till the third quarter of the fourth century A.D, when kalidasa, the nightingale of Sanskrit literature ushered in a classical age in the Indian literary world. The present piece of work concludes before the kalidasa era.
