Melvil Dewey (1851-1931) devised the library classification system known as Dewey Decimal Classification. many libraries all over the world, particularly public libraries, are classified by Dewey.

Dewey was a student at Amherst College, Massachusetts, when he devised his classification system and it was first adopted by the college library there. He became a founder of the American Library Association and the founder and first director of the New York State Library School.

Two other Americans devised library classification systems: Henry Evelyn Bliss and Charles Ammi Cutter, Bliss's Bibliographic Classification is used in some special libraries and Cutter's Expansive Classification is still used a little in the United States but hardly at all elsewhere.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking - Quick Tips

  1. Keep it short and sweet.
  2. Slow down: Don’t talk too fast.
  3. Look up! – It it’s too scary to look at the audience in the front row, look at the people in the back of the room.
  4. Smile : Look confident, even if you don’t feel confident.
  5. Pretend: Find a friendly face in the audience and pretend you’re only talking to that person.
  6. Practice: Join a debating team, dare yourself. To speak up in class, give a speech in front of a mirror. The more opportunities you have speak in public the easier it gets.
  7. Biggest asset: Self-confidence. Actas though you have a right to be there-because you do.
