Crack the Code!
The code tells us how to find books on the shelves. It is located on the spine of each book, close to the bottom.
The code has two parts:
1. Book Type:
E-Easy Reader or Picture Books
FIC-Fiction (stories or Novels)
000s General, Encyclopedias, Almanacs, etc.
100s Philosophy and Psychology
300s Social Sciences
500s Natural Sciences and Mathematics
600s Technology (Applied Sciences)
700s The Arts
800s Literature and Rhetoric
900s Geography and History
2. Author's Last Name:
Books are arranged (within each type) in alphabetical order by the authors last name. To save space, only the first three letters of the name are used.
