Course Overview

This is an introduction to the 23rd edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification system. The instructor will teach participants how to interpret and construct Dewey Decimal call numbers. Participants will learn how to derive the base number from the index and schedule and then how to complete the number using tables and other devices. Participants will examine a number of examples in detail and will also construct numbers from scratch. The examples will cover all major subject areas in the classification scheme. Participants will learn how to construct 'complete' Dewey numbers, such as those that are used in large research libraries, but will also learn how to build 'truncated' Dewey numbers, such are used in school, public and small academic libraries.

This class will be online for 3 - 2 hr sessions over 3 consecutive days using our online workshop software. All registered attendees will receive additional login information a few days prior to the 1st class date.

This workshop has been approved for six (6) General Library Education Units (LEUs).
