If you answered "YES", then you can start our online quiz by clicking HERE. Quick Review: Doin' Dewey Do you have a lot of books? Libraries have many, many books. Librarians group books by what they are about – the subject matter. Melvil Dewey, who lived from 1851 to 1931, invented a way to do this. Later he shortened his first name to Melvil, dropped his middle names and, for a short time, even spelled his last name as Dui. Organizing a Library? Before Melvil Dewey invented the Dewey Decimal System, there was not a common way to organize libraries. Most buildings were made of wood. Libraries kept books in buckets so they could easily carry them out if there was a fire. To Dewey – this was not good. Thanks to Melvil Dewey’s Dewey Decimal System, you can go in almost any public or school library and use what you know from one library to find books in another. Using Number Codes to Organize Books

Digital Citizenship Lessons for the Library Today’s children are rarely satisfied with using only the library’s print materials and online databases. With the increasing sophistication of digital technologies, even young students can bypass the local librarian to search for resources, tools and information online through common search engines. Such freedom carries with it great responsibility.

Because school librarians serve all schoolchildren, overseeing the progression of digital citizenship lessons across the grade levels seems a natural role for them. Partnering With Parents With guidance from you, parents can partner with schools to teach and reinforce digital citizenship skills. Parent-targeted Resources Digital Citizenship Curricula
