Shelving Books

At first sight this might not seem to have much to do with Web 2.0! Came across Carnegie Mellon University Library's game arcade the other day and it has a game on it which is very dear to my heart. It's called Within Range. They have to pick a pile of books off a trolley and shelve in the correct LC order. What a pity its not Dewey! Come on someone : do a Dewey version.
In fact, years ago, while I was at London South Bank we did do one : in our Information Quest tutorial and it worked rather well. It's still there. I always wanted students to be able to put a book in the correct place. Never easy when the Dewey numbers got really long...Those Dewey editors who thought up those long numbers should have been made to do a bit of shelving....

Shelving look good when they are divided equally and according to list , like we have to share the shelving for articles , fiction books , authorized book and etc….shelving should have the clear vision
