Dewey Decimal

Dewey Decimal is a 'Classification System'. This is a special system which helps us locate books about different topics.

The great thing about the Dewey Decimal system is that you can go into any library in the world and still find items based on what area they come under!

Here is what each part of the Dewey system stands for:

General Works (encyclopedias etc)
100-199 Psychology & Philosophy
200-299 Religion & Mythology
300-399 Social Sciences
400-499 Languages
500-599 Natural Science & mathematics
600-699 Applied Science & Technology
700-799 Fine Arts & Recreation
800-899 Literature & Poetry
900-999 Geography & History
