Abridged 15 in print
For libraries with collections of 20,000 titles or fewer, the abridged edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system provides the level of detail needed to classify the materials in those collections. Abridged Edition 15, published in early 2012, reflects the many changes to the body of human knowledge that have occurred since Abridged Edition 14 was published in 2004.
Packaged in one convenient, affordable print volume, the abridged DDC provides Dewey numbers that are compatible with the unabridged edition should a library’s collection expand and require deeper classification detail.
You can download PDF versions of Abridged 15 highlights, including an introduction, a glossary and relocations, discontinuation and reused numbers. Each of these tools will help you better understand how the DDC organizes knowledge into a classification that is useful to library users worldwide.
