Answer

No, we don't use the Dewey Decimal system to organize our materials. The IVC Library uses the Library of Congress Classification System:

 

A -- GENERAL WORKS

 B – PHILOSOPHY, PSYCHOLOGY, RELIGION

C -- AUXILIARY SCIENCES OF HISTORY

 D -- WORLD HISTORY AND HISTORY OF EUROPE, ASIA, AFRICA, AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND, ETC.

 E -- HISTORY OF THE AMERICAS

 F -- HISTORY OF THE AMERICAS

 G – GEOGRAPHY, ANTHROPOLOGY, RECREATION

 H -- SOCIAL SCIENCES

 J -- POLITICAL SCIENCE

 K -- LAW

 L -- EDUCATION

M -- MUSIC AND BOOKS ON MUSIC

 N -- FINE ARTS

 P -- LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE

 Q -- SCIENCE

 R -- MEDICINE

 S -- AGRICULTURE

 T -- TECHNOLOGY

 U -- MILITARY SCIENCE

 V -- NAVAL SCIENCE

Z – BIBLIOGRAPHY, LIBRARY SCIENCE, INFORMATION RESOURCES (GENERAL)

Please see the reference librarian on the first floor of the library for more help in locating materials.
