With the present article, I would like to illustrate the long period of classical librarianship and classical processing of library materials prior to the invasion of computer technology and new way of catalog composition into libraries. In the classical period of the processing of library materials, author catalogs were formed by one or several authors while in the frames of computer processing of library materials, multi-author catalogs are being produced. In the čase of an author catalog, a consistent UDC scheme exists and the author's manner of classification and editing of the catalog can be recognized.Such a catalog discloses its author: his education in a special field of knowledge and in other scientific fields, his mastering of general scientific sistematics, his mastering of the špirit in systematics of the UDC system not to resort to formal classification. The catalog also reveals the extent of the author's democracy through the way he treats his favourite and less favourite authors, places, events,phenomena, ideologies etc.In my opinion, aH the mentioned should be described and documented because passing tirne slowly but persistently destroys everything and everything which is not being documented, passes into oblivion.
