Learn about the fundamental principles of the DDC as well as practical strategies for efficient navigation and searching of WebDewey.
Join Alex Kyrios, Senior Editor of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) for a virtual training program on the DDC and WebDewey.
Ten years after the publication of the last full printed edition of the DDC, the classification continues to be constantly developed in WebDewey. You’ll learn about the fundamental principles underlying the system, as well as practical strategies for efficient navigation and searching the online interface.
The session will also cover advanced topics such as reclassification and comparison with previous versions, building and submitting your own numbers, and more. Demonstrations and interactive aspects will be a part of the training.
Objectives for the session include: (1) understand the structure of the DDC; (2) correctly classify materials; and (3) analyze built numbers and learn how to build your own.
It is recommended you use your libraries WebDewey account. A temporary shared WebDewey account will be available but you may not be able to use all the functionality of the number building exercises.
