Library storage

Library classification is really important for finding what you’re looking for among a wide range of books and works.
A classification system was developed by Melvile Deway in 1876 and is still used today. The Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) is a system for classifying a library’s entire holdings.
The ten Dewey classes correspond to nine basic disciplines: philosophy, religion, social sciences, languages, pure sciences, technology, fine arts and leisure, literature, geography and history, plus a general class.
Municipal libraries are divided into three categories: public, academic and special.
Public libraries are the most common type of library, and are generally funded by local taxes.
They offer a wide range of materials and services to the general public. Academic libraries are generally affiliated with colleges and universities.
They provide resources to support their school’s educational mission.
Special libraries include corporate libraries, government libraries, law libraries, medical libraries, etc.
Each type of library has its own classification system.

Why opt for municipal library classification?

A public library needs to be classified to help library staff and the public find books easily.
Public library classification is based on a system that uses numbers and letters to arrange books on shelves according to subject.
For example, all books on animals would be arranged together in the same section.
This system makes it easy for people to find the books they’re looking for, and it also helps library staff know where to put new books.
It’s important to classify a public library correctly, as this allows the library to function better and makes it easier for people to use.
Municipal library classification systems can help standardize the way libraries are managed.
This makes it easier for library staff to find books when they need them, and can help give libraries a consistent appearance.
As well as making it easier to find books, the classification system also helps librarians to know which books are borrowed most often, so they can purchase new copies if necessary.
In short, municipal library classification systems can be extremely useful in ensuring that libraries are well organized and easy to use.
Whatever their size or classification, all municipal libraries play an important role in promoting literacy and access to information for all members of the community.

Different filing methods for libraries

There are several ways of classifying books in a library. If it can help you with your tidying, here are a few examples:

  • In alphabetical order
  • By color
  • By publisher
  • By rating and favorites
  • By format
  • By genre
  • By nationality
  • By philosophical affinity

So, in the case of Dewey’s classification, classification by genre would be preferable. He would tell us that it is not possible to document a subject without knowing very precisely to which discipline it belongs.
