In The Intellectual Foundation of Information Organization, Svenonius attempts to "synthesize the literature ofinformation organization in a language and at a level of generality to make it understandable to persons outside the field of library and information science" and to "synthesize subject and descriptive cataloging within a common conceptual framework." The book is frequently assigned to Master of Library and Information Science students, among whom it is nicknamed "the red devil". Svenonius was the recipient of the ALCTS Margaret Mann Citationand the Ranganathan Award for Classification Research.
