However, the evolvement of this library sciences much dominated by the western scholars and we Muslim just become the user of the system though they are many disagreement regarding Islamic resources and materials being classified including the context of meaning of Arabic words, its synonymy not to mention others such as Islamic sect, ideology, philosophy, areas of specialization and etc. Not that there is no particular attention to the issues of Islamic cataloguing system and Muslim cataloguer, but the percentage or the degree of development is not equally significant with the evolvement of knowledge and technology in our modern time. Unfortunately, our Islamic materials and resources is not properly updated, organized and managed by the Muslim people involved in this field.
