In this research, we attempt to conceptualize the classification system by which information and knowledge are classified in libraries. This paper also examines the role of subject ontogeny in classification and delineates how subjects are classified following certain schemas and systems. It stresses on the role of ontology and ontogeny in classification schemes and how these tools of knowledge organization help libraries organize information more efficiently for their fast retrieval.
