Follow the Guide! 800-literature large orientation poster
An alternative for those who do not use Dewey ratings in the 800 class
The large Follow the Guide! posters illustrate the 100 Dewey divisions according to class. Using the images, users can quickly find the categories of books they are looking for. In a sense, this is the library’s documentation classification plan.
In addition, 6 illustrations have been added for those major sub-divisions most popular among children and teens and that include numerous documents, for example 398.2 Tales and Legends, 592 Invertebrates, 596 Vertebrates, 598 Birds, 599 Mammals and 636 Animal husbandry .
A different colour is assigned to each class, creating a colour code that becomes an important visual cue throughout the signage system. To facilitate differentiation of the classes, reference documents are pictured in a square while fiction appears in a circle.
The 800 class of this large Follow the Guide! poster illustrates 10 types of book:
the books are initially classed by type (Poetry, Theatre, Picture Books, Novels for Children, Teen Novels, Novels for Adults, Baby Books, Essays – Speeches – Satire and Humour, Comic Books for Children and Teens, and Comic Books for Adults) and then either by the author’s name by alphabetical order or by the Dewey Code, according to your preference.
Coloured, plasticized, “17 X 25”.
