Happy Birthday Melvil Dewey
Melvil Dewey was born on December 10, 1851. In 1876, Dewey established the most widely used library classification system. The Dewey Decimal Classification System divides books into 10 main categories. The numerical system arranges mainly non-fiction material. The Dewey Decimal System is used in 135 countries around the world and is translated into 30 different languages.
"Our great function is to inform or to inspire, or to please; to give to the public in the quickest and cheapest way information, inspiration, and recreation on the highest plane. If a better way than the books is found we should use it." Melvil Dewey
