Organization & Access
A New View of 973 (American History)
The official Dewey numbers separate American history by presidential term. This is not very helpful in a children's library. On the left is a document explaining my reasoning, process, and the resulting schedule. On the right is a shelf list using the new numbers, showing the impact of logical organization.
For years, I have maintained a LibraryThing account specifically to keep track of books that I like to use with, and recommend to, students and teachers. I have developed tags to quickly find what I am looking for. It is an ever-evolving project. I continue to be interested in the ways that modern database structures can be used to increase multi-faceted access to information.
