How does the Dewey Decimal System Work?
The Dewey Decimal Classification System is the most widely used method for classifying books in the library. This system is a general knowledge organization tool that is continuously revised to keep pace with knowledge.
Each number stands for a special topic. Every book is given a number and is put on the shelf in number order. Books with the same number are put in alphabetical order by the author’s last name. For list of call numbers, check out this University of Illinois site.

The cold war: From the descent of the iron curtain to the fall of the Berlin wall and the collapse of communism in Europe by Norman Friedman.
  • Twenty years ago, the Berlin Wall fell and Communism in Europe began to collapse. The Cold War celebrates that anniversary with a graphic account of the long-running global drama that played from the end of World War II until the era of Gorbachev and glasnost. During that time, such high-tension events as the Cuban Missile Crisis brought us to the brink of Armageddon—but both sides always drew back.
  • Follow spread by spread the development of each important stage in the long, chilly conflict that divided the world into two spheres of influence. More than 30 facsimile items of Cold War memorabilia allow readers to hold and examine diaries, letters, telegrams, decoded intercepts, and newspapers that, up till now, were confined to filing cabinets and museum exhibitions.
