We've made great progress on revamping our library, but I'm confused. I purchased the book A Classification System for Church Libraries and it's adding to my question. I'm making new spine labels for all our resources as in their current categories books/topics can be extremely difficult to locate.
In the past, I had placed books on individuals (men, women, marriage, etc.) in the 248 section (248.8+ whatever other necessary decimals to keep them grouped properly). But I see that when I search certain books online they are listed with a dewey number of 305.+ and 306.+
If married people are 248.844 when would I use 306.8 which says it is for marriage and family?
We only have Christian books in the library, so should I not use the 305 and 306 numbers so that everything stays together? (I still have 649 as parenting as suggested).
Thanks for your help!
