The Greenwood, Indiana Public Library is Ending Use of Dewey, Moving to “Subject Savvy” System
From the Greenwood, Indiana Public Library
Greenwood Public Library (GPL) is getting ready to make it easier than ever to find the book you need, when you need it. Our new Subject Savvy system will not only make it easier to find individual books, but also to browse and discover new favorites. This wordbased system thinks the way you do – in words! You’ve always been able to search our catalog with keywords or subjects, and now our shelves will also be organized with those subjects, rather than translated into numbers.
Transforming our collection from Dewey Decimals to Subject Savvy will take us time, and you will likely see the nonfiction shelves in some disarray from time to time as these changes take effect.
