The Dewey Decimal Classification System is the most widely used method for classifying books in libraries. Every book is given a number and is put on the shelf in numerical order. Books with the same number are put in alphabetical order by the author's last name, signified by the three-letter “cutter” at the bottom of the spine label.
In honour of Libraries Week, we invite you to give our Dewey Decimal Challenge a go. We'll time you organising a pre-selected collection of books in Dewey Decimal order. There are first, second and third place prizes up for grabs for students with the fastest times!
