The Dewey Decimal Classification is a system of library classification made up of ten classes, each divided into ten divisions, each having ten sections.[1] For example, class 600 ("Technology") includes division 630 ("Agriculture and related technologies"), which includes section 636 ("Animal husbandry").[1] However, there are only 99 of 100 divisions and 908 of 999 sections in total, as some are no longer in use or have not been assigned. |Contents | | [hide]  | |1 Class 000 – Computer science, information & general works | |2 Class 100 – Philosophy and psychology | |3 Class 200 – Religion | |4 Class 300 – Social sciences | |5 Class 400 – Language | |6 Class 500 – Science | |7 Class 600 – Technology | |8 Class 700 – Arts & recreation | |9 Class 800 – Literature | |10 Class 900 – History & geography | |11 See also | |12 References | |13 External links |
