What is a Digital Information Resource?
An digital information resource is an electronic collection of information that comes from encyclopaedias, journals, magazines, newspapers, books and more. It is the same information that you would get from the print copy of the publication. This means that a digital resource provides trustworthy information.
These digital resources are accessible wherever there is internet access! This means you can access information from home, school, a friend’s house and more.

The Dewey Decimal System is way to organize non-fiction books and was developed in the 1870’s by a librarian named MELVILLE DEWEY. He designed a system with numbers and decimals to classify books according to their subject so that all books on the same subject would be in the same area.
We still use the Dewey Decimal System today. All non-fiction books in the Library are shelved by their number and not by the author.
