R.J. Chambers Archive Classification Schema

Personal Library

Chambers maintained an extensive collection of books over his academic and professional life. Correspondence in the late 1940s and early 1950s in the Chambers Collection reveal that he was, arguably, one of the first Australian accounting academics to seek overseas books on cognate discipline matters to inform his theoretical ideas about a 'better system of accounting'. Those books were also classified on his office shelves using an abridged Dewey classificatory schema which has been retained in this Collection. Many of those books contain notes made by Chambers.
