Idea

The notion of locally small $(\infty,1)$-category is the generalization of the notion of locally small category from category theory to (∞,1)-category theory.

Definitions

Definition

A quasi-category $C$ is locally small if for all objects $x,y \in C$ the hom ∞-groupoid $Hom_C(x,y)$ is essentially small.

This appears as HTT, below prop. 5.4.1.7.

Properties

Proposition

A quasi-category $C$ is locally small precisely if the following equivalent condition holds:

for every small set $S$ of objects in $C$, the full sub-quasi-category on $S$ is essentially small.
