It is important for any library that users can find the information they need in what ever format easily. This course considers the different ways we might arrange our stock with particular emphasis on the Dewey Decimal System and how this can be adapted to suit different age groups and needs of the school. We will discover the secret to good cataloguing content and how to make digital media more visible. Finally, the course will cover maximising the potential of your LMS.
This course draws upon that experience looking at cataloguing and classification within the school library.
