The Dewey Decimal system was created in 1827 and it is the most widely used book organization in the world. More than 200,000 libraries in 125 countries currently use this system. The Dewey Decimal System keeps track of non-fiction library books. Fiction books are organized by the authors last name while non-fiction books are organized by ten numbered categories- a 3-digit number is placed on the spine of the book that is easily seen on a bookshelf.
