Large stone pillars (håligi) capped by stone capitals (tåsa) carved by the ancient Chamorro people to use as building supports. The latte stones have been made of limestone, basalt, or sandstone, and quarries have been found on all of the larger islands of the Marianas.
General guidelines (back to top) Cataloguing can't be learned in a day. Dewey is not a perfect system; not all books fit neatly into a single number Some books can legitimately be catalogued in several numbers; choose the one most appropriate to the curriculum and the conditions in your institution Always put a book in a number where it will get maximum usage; move excellent books if they don't seem to be used Bend the rules to suit local needs Avoid censorship: put literature in the 800s Catalog biographies into subject areas. ie. a biography of Tiger Woods should be in golf, not biography There are standard subdivisions that can be added to almost any number: .03 = dictionaries, encyclopedias. ie. 503 for a dictionary of science; 610.3 dictionary of medical terms .09 = history and criticism. ie. 809 = criticism of literature; 385.09 for a history of railways place numbers can be added where appropriate: .71 = Canada; ie. 385.0971 Canadian railways; .73 = US; ie. 330.973 American economics country codes are already present in the 900s. e.g., 971 means Canadian history; 917.3 means American geography .07 = education; ie. 507 = studying science; 622.07 = the study of mining Begin by estimating the Dewey number. Then check the Dewey index. Never assign a number without looking up the actual number in the schedules. 000 - Generalities - details 000Generalities 010Bibliography 020Library & information sciences 030General encyclopedic works 040Unassigned 050General serials & their indexes 060General organizations& museology [Museums] 070News media, journalism, publishing 080General collections 090Manuscripts & rare books 001 Knowledge 001.1 Intellectual Life 001.2 Scholarship and Learning 001.3 Humanities 001.4 Research 001.9 Controversial knowledge 002 The book003 Systems004 Data processing, computer science005 Computer programming, programs, data006 Special computer methods007 not used008 not used009 not used010 Bibliography011 Bibliographies012 Of individuals013 Of works by specific classes of authors014 Of anonymous and pseudonymous works015 Of works from specific places016 Of works on specific subjects017 General subject catalogs018 Catalogs arranged by author and date019 Dictionary catalogs020 Library & information sciences021 Relationships of libraries, archives, information centers022 Administration of the physical plant023 Personnel administration024 not used025 Library operations026 Libraries for specific subjects027 General libraries028 Reading and use of other information media029 not used030 General Encyclopedic works. ie.
