### DEWEY DECIMAL SYSTEM

With close to

15,000

books in the library . . .

HOW do I ever find what I need?

NUMBERS!!!

Thank You, Melvil Dewey!

To the RIGHT of the Decimal ...

You may find up to three numbers.

956.704

What is the name of each place value?

How do I find numbers

on the shelf?

You have to remember PLACE VALUE!!!

Just like a number line . . .

Numbers increase in value as you move from left to right.

The first book on the shelf will have a lower number than the last book on the shelf.

Imagine these are books on a shelf.

678.45

LON

679.2

MAR

678.3

SMI

678.32

CAR

680.9

MCD

680.99

MOR

683.74

LOD

Some books may have the same decimal number.

THEN you have to know the first three letters of the authors last name.

This doesn’t really happen very often, except in the fairy tale section—398.2.
