    Most churches maintain some type of media center or church library in which to catalog their materials. Many cannot afford to purchase one of the computerized media classification systems available. "A Classification System for Church Libraries" is compiled for use with church related material. It is a great refrence manual for the church librarian. This book is easy to use. It has a great relative index based upon the Dewey Decimal System which makes classification of all types of media simple. Even volunteer media helpers can, with very little training, log in and catalog various types of media using this book as a guide. "A Classification System..." makes a great desk reference. I would be lost without my well used copy. Donate one to your church library.

    This is a great book, and is a must for every church with library. It has everything you need to classify and sort your books using the Dewey Decimal System. However, I would suggest purchasing the book from the publisher at -- it's only $15.95 and in stock, which is less than half the price of the used books listed here on Amazon. I won't even talk about why some are trying to sell a new $15.95 book for hundreds of dollars. Trust me -- check out

    Excellent! The copyright date is 2004, but the book provides the dewey decimal numbers for most non-fiction book subjects needed in creating a church library. I could not do without it!

    Book is excellent for starting up a church library. I paid less than $20.00 for it about 10 yrs ago. Now it costs from $400 to almost $1200. What gives????

    This particular book was copyrighted 1996 by Convention press, revised edition in 2004 by LifeWay press, and currently in its sixth printing in 2012. To the point & easy to follow as it helps adapt the Dewey Decimal system to even a small library like our church's. The Relative Index in the back of the book is so handy to look up subjects with its classification number written beside the topic. As a newly appointed assistant church librarian, I'm so thankful for a detailed & easy-to-use resource such as this book.

    This is my second copy. Lost the first copy. We just set up a library for our small school three years ago. This book was a wonderful help to me setting up the Dewey Decimal system when I had no real prior training just a bit of knowledge about the Dewey decimal system. I lost the first book over a year ago and just had to replace it because it is that valuable to me. Fantastic book full of easy to understand valuable information.

    Just as described. Packed well. Shows the dewey system, but a little too advanced for our library.
