Resource Library

 

Resource Library

 

The Resource Centre’s holdings have been reclassified using a bookstore-style layout similar to the Book Industry Standards and Communications method as opposed to the Dewey Decimal Classification system. The Dewey system was invented in 1876 and continues to be used in most large libraries; however, for our smaller Catholic library it is believed the new system will be more efficient. Under the new classification system, books will grouped by subject, rather than by number. The hope is that our guests will be able to find books more easily and will be encouraged to read more books!  The multimedia section is being updated as well to include some of the most current resources available from Dynamic Catholic, Word on Fire and Ignatius Press. Also, keep checking our "Current Feature" by clicking on the tab below, where you will find a review of a newly arrived Catholic resource. Stay tuned for updates!

 

“The one who knows more loves more.”  St. Catherine of Siena
