Posters: Dewey Classification System @ UJ Kingsway Campus Library

I have arranged quickly today these posters on a board in the UJ Kingsway Campus Library.

The system is still new, so students need all the support from us.

Consult the UJLink: Library Catalogue for specific shelf number and location.

Need more information about Dewey Classification System?
