Yr 7 Library Task
By: Kiana Gashtirajaie
While working as a librarian at Amherst College, Melvil Dewey developed a system of book classification using numbers from 000-999, dividing non-fiction books into 10 broad catogories. I think that he helped the society a lot, because he founded the American library association along with other things.
