2. Book Organization Changes
So if school libraries are no longer using the Dewey Decimal System, how are they organizing their books? Many school libraries now separate books by genre or topic to make it easier for students to find books that interest them. This type of organization more closely resembles a bookstore!
You’ll also notice that many books are gone in favor of computers — some school libraries have even gone paper book-free! That’s because books are hard to update with new information, unlike websites. However, it’s important for students to know how to use books in their research, as some are not available online.
