A brief PowerPoint slide show to help you understand how the Dewey Decimal Classification system works in your library Get to know the Dewey Decimal Classification system
Did you know that our library has a great way of organizing its books so that you can find them easily?
It’s called the Dewey Decimal Classification system—or DDC. This system got its name from Melvil Dewey ( ), who introduced his great idea for organizing library collections in Melvil Dewey
But how does the DDC benefit you? Very simply, the DDC is an organizational tool that makes it easy for you to find the books and other materials you want.
So what does the DDC do? It helps solve a big problem: helping you find the right information by giving you a specific number that belongs to the item you want.
The DDC helps libraries arrange the items so that library users can find them. It’s a lot like an organized kitchen pantry: Canned goods on one shelf Breakfast cereals and grains on a second shelf Baking goods on a third shelf Snacks on a fourth shelf
