S. R. Ranganathan Classification: Based on the physical characteristics of documents S. R. Ranganathan classified documentary sources of information into four categories. These also reflect the chronological order of their development. They are:

i) Conventional: Books, periodicals, Map etc.;

ii) Neo Conventional: Standards, specification, patent etc.;

iii) Non Conventional: Audio visual, microcopy etc.;

iv) Meta Document: Direct records unmediated by human mind.
