The Dewey Decimal System is the system used by the library to organise the books and other items on the shelves. This system gives all library items their shelfmark, sometimes also called class number, which can be found on a label on the spine of the item and determines where the books are located in the library.

You can read more about shelfmarks, and a video on finding a book on the shelf by shelfmark, using the links below.
