Billings Classification

"The Billings Classification is a subject classification developed by John Shaw Billings in 1899. It was not an abstract experiment in the mapping of human knowledge, but rather a system devised specifically for the optimum arrangement of the Library’s collections. Dr. Billings envisioned a layout for the building, and while his classification scheme was in fact a division of human intellectual achievement into various subject areas designated by letter codes varying in number (usually three), it was fashioned in such a way as to maximize access to the unique holdings of the Library.

Cutter Expansive Classification

"Charles Ammi Cutter (1837–1903), inspired by the decimal classification of his contemporary Melvil Dewey, originally developed his own classification scheme for the collections of the Boston Athenaeum, at which he served as librarian for two dozen years. He began work on it about 1880 and published the first schedules in the early 1890s. His five-volume catalogue of the Athenaeum collection is a classic in bibliographic history.

Monarch Method

"Three years ago, with the help of some dedicated library volunteers, I decided I was 'Done with Dewey' - we built our own classification system from the ground up based on how my students and staff search for books. I call it the Monarch Method. The best comparison is that it makes looking for books in my library similar to buying a book online through Amazon."
