Summary/Abstract: The aim of this work is to present a broad circle of specialists and lovers of folklore with the classification scheme (KS), on the basis of which the NCCCF typological catalogue of folklore archive material is constructed. It was prepared in 1994 on the basis of a large corpus of empiric folklore records - a result of the long-term efforts of all associates of the institute. KS is a specific projection of the main spheres of culture - songs, rituals, verbal forms, music, dancing, material culture. Every section and every rubric of the catalogue can be continued and complemented with the appearance of new information. KS is based on the simultaneous combination of several important principles - presentation of folklore culture in its diversity and system; pointing out to the uniqueness of the separate cultural fact; ensuring effective access and easy usage of archive funds for everybody, who is interested. KS is also a necessary step to the modern computer processing of the empiric data.
