Dewey Decimal Classification System

Library classification system devised by Melvil Dewey in 1873 which divides knowledge into 10 main categories or classes: 

  1. General works
  2. Philosophy
  3. Religion
  4. Sociology
  5. Philology
  6. Natural science
  7. Useful arts
  8. Fine arts
  9. Literature
  10. History

These ten classes have further subdivisions which are indicated by decimal notations. Many school and public libraries use this system.
