Books in public libraries are arranged on the shelves using the Dewey Decimal Classification system, a numerical system that organizes nonfiction by subject.
Each nonfiction book is assigned a "call number." The call number groups books together by subject which keeps them organized.
Here is a list of the ten main Dewey subjects:
000 – Computer science, Library and Information science & general work
100 – Philosophy and psychology
200 – Religion
300 – Social sciences
400 – Language
500 – Science
600 – Technology
700 – Arts
800 – Literature
900 – History, geography & biography
