It may be noted that the books at serial numbers 3 and 6 are not written by Ranganathan. In this Ranganathan has been treated as subject whereas Ranganathan is author of rest of the books. Author catalogue will take entries at 1,2,4 and 5 only, whereas name catalogue will take all these in one alphabetical sequence.
All the merits and demerits of author catalogue are present in name catalogue. But it has an additional benefit, that is information about the books written by an author and all the books written on him as subject or title are made available at one place. It has as additional limitation also. Since it is a mixed catalogue, sometimes confusion may arise if a particular entries for author, author treated as title, and author treated as subject are arranged in one alphabetical sequence.
