In this webinar with Alex Kyrios, Senior Editor of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), you’ll review number-building techniques before getting hands-on building numbers for a variety of topics, including the tricky builds for literature in the 800s. Working in WebDewey, you’ll learn how to make the most of its built-in number-building tool.

The session will cover advanced examples and is well geared towards experienced users, but users of all skill and experience levels are welcome.
