How are nonfiction books arranged in a library

Morris School Library. Jim Thorpe's Online Book Catalog. OverDrive e-Books. Scholastic Storia. Accelerated Reader Resources.

If you are thinking of volunteering or getting a job at a library, you likely will be shelving books. Books have to be ordered on shelves for library patrons to find and check out. To make sorting easier, libraries arrange books according to classification systems. Most public and school libraries use the Dewey Decimal System, while many universities and specialty libraries use the Library of Congress Classification system. Find out which system your library uses, then take advantage of the call number tags taped to books to ensure each one has a place on the shelves.

What a huge undertaking! I will be interested to know if your students or you can still find things. Yes, I cannot wait to see how they browse and find things too. I will be following these things as we open the library in just over a week. Great job, Shan! I know that you and your students are going to LOVE the change! Thank you, Tiff.

    What is the Dewey Decimal System? Nonfiction books, ie. those that are factual rather than imagined stories like novels, are organized in libraries by subject.
