The attractive colour posters and shelf labels illustrate clearly the 10 Dewey categories and their 100 divisions.

On these posters and tools, the 800 class is adapted to classification according to the type of book; in other words, books are categorized first 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).  According to your preference, you may then choose to use either the author’s name by alphabetical order or the Dewey Code.

You may also decide to add Follow the Guide! (800 standard) shelf labels to meet your needs for the classification of novels for adults according to the Dewey System.

Corresponding mini-labels that may be glued to the books’ spines or on shelf labels are also available to facilitate identification of the literary genre, reading level, the language in which each book is written, and other indicators, such as Reference or Audio-Visual. See corresponding mini-labels.
