When you visit us during the summer you will notice that there are empty shelves, book cases in strange places and that books are not on their usual places. This is due to the classification system change that we are doing. We are going from the Swedish classification system which is built on letters to an international classification system called Dewey Decimal Classification System (DDC) which is built on numbers. Read more about our Dewey work.
At the moment we are done with the classes 000, 100, 200 and working on 300 so these books are on their right places.
We print out labels.
We paste the label onto the book and to be on the safe side we use additional tape to make sure the label sticks to the book.
Then the books are placed on temporary shelves before we can place them to their proper place on the proper shelves.
