Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) is one of the most widely used classification schemes in the world and the one in use at the University of Roehampton. A classification scheme is essentially a way to organise books and other items by subject so that they are easy to find. Each item is assigned a shelfmark based on Dewey; you can find shelfmarks for items you are interested on UR Library Search; they will also appear in your resource lists. Our Using the Library guide contains more information on Dewey Decimal Classification.
