It’s really hard to find the books in the library specially if the books are not well-organized. You’ll waste your time looking for the certain book or for the information that you need for your research and will end up submitting late reports.
“If we just put all of our books anywhere in the Library, no one would be able to find anything. Obviously, they need to be organized.
In the late 1800’s, a librarian named Melvil Dewey came up with an organizing system that has become known as the Dewey Decimal System and is used in public and school libraries. If you understand the basics of Dewey, you can find books in most libraries. You probably learned about Dewey in school, but just in case you’ve forgotten, we’re going to give you a little lesson.”
It is the responsibility of the Librarian to organize all the books, and it is also the responsibility of the person using the books to return it in the right section to avoid confusion for the next person who’s going to look and use that book. You should also be careful when you’re using the book, because that’s not yours, you just borrowed it. It’s a school property or its a government property. Be careful not to ruin the pages or the book itself.
Here’s an example of how they arrange the books in the library:
100 Philosophy & Psychology
300 Social Sciences
500 Natural Sciences & Mathematics
600 Technology (Applied Sciences)
700 The Arts
800 Literature & Rhetoric
900 Geography & History
020 Library & information sciences
030 General encyclopedic works
040 Not assigned or no longer used
050 General serials & their indexes
060 General organization & museology
070 News media, journalism, publishing
080 General collections
090 Manuscripts & rare books
Now its easier to find the books in the library. Keep it organized and neat so the person who will need the book for reference will not have a hard time finding it. If all libraries are well-organized like this, then you will not have any problems in finding the documents or books that you need.
Also refrain from damaging the book. Specially the pre-historic ones. Do not do what Mr. Bean did when he went to the library. It was really funny. Though it was an accident but please refrain from committing those mistakes. Accidents happen but as much as possible you would want to be very careful with the things that are not yours, specially if the books are owned by the government like for example you’re inside the Presidential Library, again do not do what Mr. Bean did or you’ll be in a big trouble.
Not all libraries are free. Sometimes you have to become a member and pay for the staff and library maintenance.
Often times, parents are allowed to use the school library for research or whatever like reading books.
“A school library (or a school library media center) is a library within a school where students, staff, and often, parents of a public (state) or private (fee paying) school have access to a variety of resources.”
For me, if we’re going to talk about convenience and fast results, yes I will Google it as well. But when it comes to valuable and original references, I will still go to a public library and take my time doing the research.
My Doctor once said, “Do not believe everything you read in the internet”. It made me think a little.
I’ve been searching online for years, especially if I need the results right away. I thought about what she said for few hours and I then realized that she was right.
Many people claimed to be a Doctor online but the fact is they just want to promote their acne product, or their slimming product or whatever.
That’s how I see it. But it really is a case to case basis. Due to all the High-Technology evolution today, some kids have never been to a public library. The idea of our younger generation having never to experience the library causes me to feel pain.
