The Dewey Decimal System is used by all of the University of Greenwich Libraries. This system dictates how we order our book stock.
The numbers correspond to subject areas. There are ten main subject groups.
Each group is then divided and subdivided into more specific subject areas.
Books are arranged in numerical order and by decimal, read the numbers line by line so 658.112 would come before 658.2.
The letters at the end of the shelfmark are taken from the first three letters of the author's name. These letters are important when it comes to finding a particular book as you may have multiple items with the same shelfmark number.
There are a number of ways to access resources.
