Dewey Decimal Classification system

New edition of the essential guide to organizing library collections

Facet Publishing have announced the release of the second edition of Vanda Broughton’s textbook Essential Classification.

Classification is everywhere. We classify birds and animals, languages and ethnic groups, stars, volcanoes, minerals and clouds, wine and blood, and colours and roses. We classify diseases, occupations and social status; the size of notepaper (grand eagle, elephant and pott); the dimensions of icebergs (small, bergy bits and growlers); and brandy (mellow, pale and superior).
