Dewey Decimal Classification

Faculty In-service


Dear teachers
Dear Teachers:

  • Today, we will be reviewing the Dewey Decimal Classification system as you likely learned in your own schooling.

  • We will then take the classification system to the next level by discussing how to classify websites for easy access on our new teacher webpage.

  • This PowerPoint will be placed on the intranet server for your reference at a later date.

  • You will also be able to use the information here to help your students better use the library for their work in your class.


Dewey basics
Dewey Basics

  • Dewey proposed that all knowledge could be summarized into 10 main classes.

  • His system, developed in 1876, is still used by most K-12 school and public libraries.

  • As our knowledge has expanded, the classification scheme has evolved, but all materials still have a place in the system.


Why classify
Why classify?

  • Breaking down resources into categories makes it easier to locate an item.

  • Categories are subject driven, making it more likely that the material meets the user’s specific needs.

  • An objective, universal system means that users do not have to figure out how each collection is arranged.


Call numbers
Call Numbers

  • These are essentially the book’s “address,” an identifying mark to know where the book belongs.

  • They are found on a “spine label” at the bottom of the outside edge of the book.

  • In our media center, the spine label gives the call number, a colored dot to indicate its location in the media center, and an Accelerated Reader label, if applicable.
