Arizona Library to Shelve by Topic
The Gilbert Library of the Maricopa County Library District in Arizona will be opening in June. In addition to adding another branch for a growing community, this one will not use either the Dewey Decimal or Library of Congress classification systems. The entire collection will be shelved by topic, according to the Arizona Republic newspaper.
This idea comes from the bookstore arena. Personally, I have a very difficult time finding books by subject in a bookstore, but that may be because I’m a librarian. 😉
