that illustrate the occasional difficulties encountered in finding things in a library. If you wanted to build a shed you could find directions in both the 712.6 and the 690.89 books, but you wouldn't find both books if you were browsing one or the other Dewey number. And you wouldn't find both if you were using the catalog because the catalog record for the 712.6 book doesn't mention that it has instructions for building sheds (and decks, and walks, and patios, and so.)
Sheds, walks, or decks are represented by at least two concepts in Dewey-land. Landscape architecture (712) and construction projects (690). Also law. Call 240.777.6260 for information about County permits, 301.563.3400 if you need a Historic Area Work Permit.Posted by library at May 11, 2005 04:20 PM
