About the Library's Book Collection

Books in the TJC library are arranged by the Dewey Decimal Classification System, which uses the 000's to 900's numbering system to identify a subject area. Using the very brief subject list below, you can see that you would find a book over religion in the 200's section of the library or a history book in the 900's.  

000 Generalities
100 Philosophy & Psychology
200 Religion
300 Social Studies
400 Language
500 Natural Sciences & Math
600 Technology (Applied Science)
700 The Arts
800 Literature & Rhetoric
900 Geography & History
