Dewey Decimal System


 What is the Dewey Decimal System?


The Dewey Decimal Classification System (DDC) is a system that classifies or categorizes nonfiction books into ten main divisions. These classes are further divided into ten subdivisions and the use of decimals allows for additional categories. A book is assigned a Dewey number based on its subject matter. In most libraries the Dewey number and the first three letters of the author's last name become the book's call number. Nonfiction books are arranged numerically on the shelves according to DDC, ranging from 001 to 999.


How does the Dewey Decimal System work?
