You Will Need
- Book collection
- Organization skills
- Library classification methods
Organize by genre
Organize your books by genre. Separate fiction and non-fiction works, then subdivide each of these categories. Non-fiction, for example, could be further broken down into reference, travel, and self-help.
Organize by library classification
Organize your books according to library classifications. The Dewey Decimal System organizes your books numerically and the Library of Congress system groups similar topics.
Organize by function
Organize by the book’s function. Place your cookbooks near the kitchen, your reference books near your home office, and your fiction close to where you do your leisure reading.
Organize by color
Organize your books according to the color on each book’s spine. This does wonders for a room’s visual appeal.
