Prospecting for gold in Colorado
Our book is entitled: Prospecting for gold in Colorado. There are three aspects or facets to our work: [click] The activity: Prospecting The object sought: Gold And the place: Colorado. prospecting gold Colorado

Prospecting 622.1 Prospectors 622.109 2 Prosperity …
Relative Index Prospecting Prospectors Prosperity … Gold chemical engineering chemistry … production economics prospecting Go to Sched. So we turn to our relative index. A logical assumption would be to search the relative index under Prospecting. [click] And we do find a number listed for prospecting: [click] But out of curiosity let’s also check under “gold” to see what we find. [click] We scan down and find that there is a listing for prospecting under gold. [click] We never class from the index, but this will give us a starting point: [click] So let’s head to the schedule in search of [click]

622 Dewey Decimal Classification 622
Schedules looking for Dewey Decimal Classification 622 … .18 Prospecting for specific materials Add to base number the numbers following 553 in , e.g. prospecting for petroleum … Go to 553.2 Standard subdivisions are added for specific materials even if only one type of prospecting is used, e.g., seismic exploration for petroleum in Texas In the schedule we don’t find our number. It turns out that is a built number. We need to know how it was built so that we can determine whether or how we can add the element of place to our number.[click] is the number for Prospecting for specific materials. [click] Under that there are some instructions. [click] Add to base number the numbers following 553 in In other words, the instructions are sending us backward in the schedule to find the digits that represent the material minded for—in our case, gold. [click] So we start by writing down our base number: Now, before going anywhere else we also notice that there is additional text here. [click] Note this number? That tells us how we’ll add the element of place. After we add our number for gold we’ll add a 09, then our number for place. [click] But for now we need to find our number for gold, found in the 553 area. [click] So we head to [click] 622.18

553 Dewey Decimal Classification 553
Schedules looking for Dewey Decimal Classification 553 .41 Gold .42 Precious metals … Add to base number the numbers following 553 in , e.g. prospecting for petroleum … Go to Table 1 In the 553 section we find the digits that mean gold. But our instructions were to take the numbers following [click] So we are going to add .41 to our base number. [click] At this point we have accounted for prospecting. [click] And for gold. [click] But we have yet to accommodate place in our number. [click] We were not given permission in the schedule at either place we’ve been to go directly to Table 2. But we can always go to Table 1. So let’s go there now. [click] 622.18 41 prospecting gold place

―093–099 Treatment by specific continents, countries, localities…
Prospecting for gold in Colorado Table 1 ―093–099 Treatment by specific continents, countries, localities… Add to base number ―09 notation 3-9 from Table 2 … Go to Table 2 Here we are in Table 1.[click] Here’s our familiar instruction: Add to base number –09 notation 3-9 from Table 2. [click] So we add 09, just the way we saw it in the petroleum exploration in Texas example. [click] And now we head to Table 2 in search of Colorado. 09

Prospecting for gold in Colorado
Table 2 ―788 Colorado 788 In Table 2 we find our digits for Colorado. [click] We add these to our number and we’re done. [click] We started with our number for prospecting from the schedule. [click] Then we followed directions to find the digits for gold at another place in the schedule. [click] Then we went to Table 1 to allow us to add a –09 to indicate by locality. [click] This allowed us to go to Table 2 to get our number for Colorado. Prospecting (from Schedule) Gold (Sched.) By locality (Table 1) Colorado (Table 2)

Bulgarian-German dictionary Bi-lingual dictionary
Bulgarian language German language Bi-lingual dictionary 491.81 Here we have a bilingual dictionary. [click] Now we have three facets to include in our number: Bulgarian, German, and the fact that this is a bi-lingual dictionary. Again we start in the schedule. Which language do we start with? The farthest from our own. We check the Relative index to find the numbers for the two languages. [click] The number for Bulgarian is [click] The number for German is 430. [click] Dewey tells us that if we have two foreign languages we start with the one with the largest number. [click] So if we have a Bulgarian-German dictionary we start with Bulgarian. 430 Start with language farthest from my own. If unsure, choose the largest number.

Bulgarian-German dictionary
Other languages .81 South Slavic languages Bulgarian Standard subdivisions, writing systems … dictionaries, grammar of Bulgarian Add to base number notation 01-5 from Table 4, e.g., grammar of Bulgarian We find our number in the schedule for Bulgarian. [click] Under Bulgarian we have some instructions. [click] Standard subdivisions, dictionaries… [click] We scroll down further and we see the following: [click] So we start with our base number: [click] Then we go to Table 4. [click] Bulgarian-German dictionary 491.81 Go to Table 4

T4 Table 4. Subdivisions of Individual Languages T4
—3 Dictionaries of the standard form of the language — Techniques, procedures, apparatus, equipment, materials —31 Specialized dictionaries… — Bilingual dictionaries Add to —3 notation 2–9 from Table 6, e.g. dictionaries of the language and English —321, dictionary of French and English In Table 4 we have special instructions on how to handle bilingual dictionaries. [click] First, we’re told to append the number 3 to our number for Bulgarian. [click] So let’s add our 3. [click Then we’re sent to Table 6. [click] So let’s head to Table 6. [click] Bulgarian-German dictionary 491.81 3 Go to Table 6

Table 6. Languages The following notation is never used alone, but may be used with those numbers from the schedules and other tables to which the classifier is instructed to add notation from Table 6…When adding to a number from the schedules, always insert a point between the third and fourth digits of the complete number. Table 6 consists of another listing of numbers for languages. [click] This list is ONLY used when you are appending the number for a language to another number. [click] This is important. You always start with a number from the schedule. Then you append numbers from the tables. SUMMARY —1 Indo-European languages —2 English and Old English (Anglo-Saxon) —3 Germanic (Teutonic) languages…

Bulgarian-German dictionary
T Table 6. Languages T6 —3 Germanic languages… —31 German Bulgarian-German dictionary 31 In Table 6 we find the add-on number for German [click]: 31 [click] We append this to our number for a dictionary in Bulgarian and we get our number: [click] Note that we found elements for our number in three different places: [click] We started, as always, in the schedule. There we found the base number for Bulgarian. [click] Then, we went to Table 4. This gave us our number for dictionary: 3. [click] The instructions in Table 4 led us to Table 6. In Table 6 we found the add-on number for German. Base no. for Bulgarian (from schedule) Dictionary (from Table 4) German (from Table 6)

History of the Burmese people in New Zealand
Here we have three facets to incorporate into our number: [click] history a people a place When we have the history of a people in a place we start with the history of the place. [click] So we need to head to the history section of the schedule. history people place

Schedule 990 History of other parts of world, of extraterrestrial worlds Pacific Ocean Islands *New Zealand In the history section we find a number already built for us that means the history of New Zealand: [click] So we write down our number. [click] But we notice that we have an asterisk. [click] So we look down at the bottom of the page to find a footnote: [click] Add as instructed under [click] So we head to the instructions under *Add as instructed under History of the Burmese people in New Zealand 993 Go to

930 History of specific areas 930
930–990 History of ancient world; of specific continents, countries… Add to base number 9 notation 3–9 from Table 2, e.g., general history of Europe 940 … then add further as follows: 001 Philosophy and theory 004 Ethnic and national groups Add to 004 notation 05–9 from Table 5 … Go to Table 5 As instructed we turn to our instructions under [click] We scan down and find our instruction for referencing an ethnic group. [click] We’re told to add 004 to our number. [click] So let’s do that. [click] Then we’re told to add notation 05-9 from Table 5. [click] So let’s head to Table 5. [click] History of the Burmese people in New Zealand 993 .004

Table 5. Ethnic and National Groups
The following numbers are never used alone, but may be used as required (either directly when so noted or through the interposition of notation 089 from Table 1) with any number from the schedules… [click] Table 5 gives us a listing of numbers that represent ethnic and national groups. SUMMARY —05–09 [Persons of mixed ancestry…] —01 North Americans…

Table 5. Ethnic and National Groups
SUMMARY —05–09 [Persons of mixed ancestry…] —1 North Americans —2 British, English, Anglo-Saxons —3 Germanic people —4 Modern Latin peoples —5 Italians, Romanians, related groups —6 Spanish and Portuguese —7 Other Italic peoples —8 Greeks and related groups —9 Other ethnic and national groups Looking for Burmese people We can find our number for the Burmese people two ways. The faster way would be to look them up in the Relative Index. The other way is to go through the Table 5 summary. Scanning down we determine that the Burmese are probably relegated to the “other” category. [click]

T5 Table 5. Ethnic and Nat. Groups T5
—9 Other ethnic and national groups Looking for Burmese people —91 Other Indo-European peoples —92 Semites —93 Non-Semitic Afro-Asiatic peoples —94 Peoples of North and West Asian origin or situation; Dravidians —95 East and Southeast Asian peoples —96 Africans and people of African descent —97 North American native peoples —98 South American native peoples —99 … Papuans, Australian native peoples; Malayo-Polynesian and related … Within the “other” category we scan down and find “East and Southeast Asian peoples.” [click] This looks like a good bet.

T5 Table 5. Ethnic and Nat. Groups T5
—95 East and Southeast Asian peoples; Mundas —951 Chinese —954 Tibetans —956 Japanese —957 Koreans —958 Burmese History of the Burmese people in New Zealand Here is our number for the Burmese people [click], 958. [click] which we append to our number. [click] Now our number is complete. We started with the schedule, in the history class. We were given a base number for the history of New Zealand: 993. [click] Then we went to the instructions at the beginning of There we found a number that indicated we’re talking about a particular ethnic group:004. [click] Then we were sent to Table 5 to find the number for the Burmese people. 958 History of New Zealand (schedule) Ethnic grps. (instr. under ) Burmese people (from Table 5)

Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history
Here again we have three facets we would like to incorporate into our classification number: [click] The activity: mining The period: the 19th century The place: Colorado We know from experience we can usually add the period or the place to our topic so we start with mining. [click] mining period place

Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history
Relative Index Mining engineering enterprises labor economics law production economics public administration We go to our Relative Index and we find entries for mining. None of the subtopics beneath the main heading look to be appropriate so we choose the number for the main heading: 622. [click] Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history

period place Schedules
622 Mining and related operations Standard subdivisions are added for mining and related operations together, for mining alone Prospecting Excavation techniques Mining for specific materials … Mine health and safety SUMMARY We find our number for mining: 622 [click] We write down our number. [click] We scan through the mining section and we don’t see any numbers that incorporate period or place. [click] However, we can always go to Table 1, so let’s head there. [click] Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 622 Go to Table 1 period place

Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 622
Table 1. Standard Subdivisions period or place ? ―090 1–090 5 Historical periods … class historical periods in specific continents, countries, localities in ―093–099… Go to Now we have a dilemma. [click] Do we start with period [click] or place? [click] Fortunately, DDC tells us what to do. “class historical periods in specific continents, countries, localities in ―093–099” If we have both a period and a specific place we are sent to the ―093–099 section of Table 1. [click] So let’s go to that section of Table 1. [click] Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 622

―093–099 Treatment by specific continents, countries, localities…
Table 1 ―093–099 Treatment by specific continents, countries, localities… place Add to base number ―09 notation 3-9 from Table 2…then add as follows: … 09 Historical and geographic treatment Add to 09 the numbers following ―09 in notation from Table 1, e.g. 20th century 0904 Go to Table 2 This is the section of Table 1 where we add our place. [click] We find our instructions. [click] Add to base number –09 notation 309 from Table 2. [click] Then add as follows. If we scan down we see that after we add our place we are given the opportunity to add our period. [click] So we add our 09. [click] Then we proceed to Table 2. [click] Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 622 .09

Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 622.09
Table 2 ―788 Colorado Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 788 Go back to Table 1 We find our digits for Colorado: [click] And we append them to our number. [click] Now we want to head back to Table 1 for instructions on how to add the period. [click]

―093–099 Treatment by specific continents, countries, localities…
Table 1 ―093–099 Treatment by specific continents, countries, localities… Add to base number ―09 notation 3-9 from Table 2…then add as follows: … 09 Historical and geographic treatment Add to 09 the numbers following ―09 in notation from Table 1, e.g. 20th century 0904 We go back to our then add as follows. [click] Add to 09 the numbers following –09 in notation from Table 1. [click] Okay we add another number 09! [click] Then we go to the section of Table 1. [click] So let’s add another 09. [click] Now we go to the section. [click] Go to Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 09

Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 622.0978809
Table 1 Add to 09 the numbers following ―09 in notation from Table 1, e.g. 20th century 0904 ―090 1–090 5 Historical periods … ― th century, At the beginning of the 090 section we find our historical periods. [click] Among them we find the 19th century. [click] But remember our instructions were to take the numbers following the 09. So we take the digits 034 [click] and append them to our number. [click] Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 034

622 .09 788 09 034 Our number Mining (sched.) by locality Table 1
Colorado Table 2 So, we started with mining [click] Then we selected “by locality” from our options in Table 1 because we were told to do so. [click] Then we went to Table 2 to find our number for Colorado [click] Then we went back to Table 1 to find out how to add our period and were told to add another 09. [click] That allowed us to append our digits for the 19th century. [click] This is probably one of the most difficult numbers you’ll encounter simply because the instructions aren’t obvious. You have to search through a bit of verbiage to find out what order to take in building your number. But you can do it! By period Table 1 Mining in 19th century Colorado: a history 19th century Table 1
