Masonic Libraries  have special requirements to enable cataloguing of the many different subjects found in their specialized collections.  Several different classification systems have been employed in Grand Lodges Library over the years.  The current system was adopted in 1989 following advice from the Librarian of the United Grand Lodge of England.  The Catalogue of the J.R. Robertson Masonic Memorial Library is arranged according to the following system.  The current edition of the Catalogue covers almost 70 pages and is available for purchase from the Grand Lodge Office.
