Dewey Decimal System Day - December 10

Dewey Decimal System Day

DEWEY DECIMAL SYSTEM DAY

Dewey Decimal System Day is observed annually on December 10.

December 10, 1851, is the birthday of Melvil Dewey (1851-1931) inventor of the Dewey Decimal system of library classification.

As the most widely used library classification system, the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) or Dewey Decimal System has been in use since 1876 when American Librarian Melvil Dewey developed and established it. Divided into ten main categories, the numerical system arranges mostly non-fiction publications.
