Scott (head of the Joint Personnel Recovery Library at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia) presents a guide to the 22nd edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification system. She provides a brief history of its development up to the newest edition and reviews its general structure and framework. She then discusses the principles of number building within the system and explores the general aspects of the tables along with the most recent revisions. The bulk of the volume is devoted to detailed discussion of the revisions for each of the subject classes, along with treatment of the number building process for each class and practice exercises. A final chapter examines the function of book numbers and types of book number schemes.
