    19 year old Melvil Dewey created an organizational system for identifying books by subjects.  Dewey's system was based on using whole numbers to identify the overall subject (see below). The decimals are good identifiers for specific details within the subjects. For Dewey,  FICTION would fit into the category '800 Literature'. 

    21st century libraries place FICTION completely separated from the rest of the collection.
