THE MASTER'S SEMINARY LIBRARY

LIBRARY CLASSIFICATION SYSTEMS


Books are placed on library shelves according to a classification scheme. A basic familiarity with those systems is vital for the student so they can find materials efficiently within the collection. Students of The Master’s Seminary will encounter the two main systems: (1) The Library of Congress Classification System [LC], and (2) The Dewey Decimal System [Dewey]. The seminary utilizes the LC system while The Master’s College utilizes the Dewey system.
