Are You Ready for a Remix?

Dewey’s days are numbered! 146 years ago Melville Dewey started using the Dewey Decimal System to organise a library using call numbers and arranging books alphabetically by author. Up until now, we have been using that very same system to organise our Library collection. From Monday, 14 October 2019 finding the books you love at the Ruth Faulkner Library is simple.

Just like browsing a book store, or deciding what to watch on Netflix, all of your favourites are stored together. You will still be able to find a book based on a call number or author, but browsing the shelves is a whole lot easier! Librarians call this a discovery layout. Similar items are put together to help you to discover your next great read, audiobook or film. Whether you are keen on gardening or history, thrillers or romance there is a section in the Library tailored just to you!
