Dewey or Don’t We?: Transitioning to a Deweyless Library

  • Have you heard about “The Bookstore Model” and wondered what all the fuss is about?
  • Are you ready to ditch Dewey but feel intimidated?

Logan MacDonald from Anythink Libraries, and Holli Buchter, Media Services Coordinator for the St. Vrain School District share their experiences with going Deweyless.  Both of these presenters have taken a different approach to this concept in their libraries, and they look forward to sharing their insight, process and challenges in this endeavor. (Note: we experienced a few audio issues right at the beginning of the webinar, but the main content is fine.)


The Idaho Commission for Libraries offers a self-paced course on merchandising.
