No classification will last for ever, and it will rarely last half a century without becoming obsolete. Therefore the main quality that is required from a classification is susceptibility to modifications even in its foundation. Generally there would be no difficulty in revising a classification by the insertion of new main classes and the addition of new subdivisions, if this were not prevented by the notation. When using the common notations, e.g. that of the Decimal Classification, it is impossible to insert anywhere an indefinite number of new parallel sections, either in the main classes or in the subdivisions.

THE EAST AFRICAN SCHOOL of Librarianship was the brainchild of S. W. Hockey, at one time Libraries Organiser in East Africa for the British Council. In 1960 Hockey submitted a report to the Governors of Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika, proposing the establishment of a joint librarianship school for the three territories. This was at a time when a big expansion of the public library service was taking place, or at least was being planned, throughout the region, but Hockey also foresaw that a fast growth of school and specialist libraries was bound to come within the decade. It would have been difficult at that time to find a single fully qualified African librarian in any of the three countries.
