Today I want to talk to you about Melvil Dewey
While working as a librarian at Amherst College, Melvil Dewey developed a sysytem of book classification using numbers from 000-999, dividing non-fiction books into 10 broad catogories. I think that he helped the society alot, because he founded the American library association along with other things.
Where Any Of His Ideas Good Or Not?
His ideas were very smart like for example, The DDC sysytem introduced the concepts of relative location and relative index. I think that Melivil Dewey was a very smart person. He made it easier to add books to a library and in their right places.
