Dewey Decimal Classification System
The Dewey Decimal Classification system is a tool used by many libraries to arrange items on a shelf by subject. It is widely used by public and school libraries to organize their collections.
In the Alvin Sherman Library, the Dewey Decimal System is used for the children's and young adult collections. Most other collections in the Alvin Sherman Library, including all other circulating books and the reference collection, use the Library of Congress Classification System. Sound recordings (compact discs and cassettes) are classified by ANSCR, the Alpha-Numeric System for Collections of Recordings.
