When arranging materials, sort first by the whole number (the three digits before the decimal). If there is more than one item with the same whole number, sort by the number following the decimal point. For example: 800, 808. 09, 808. 1, 808. 14, 808. 2, 808. 321. Remember that the number after the decimal point is a fraction, so in the example above,. 14 is smaller than. 2 and comes before it when shelving. Books classed as fiction are arranged on the shelves alphabetically by the last name of the author. If there are several authors with the same last name, sort alphabetically by first names, and if there are several books by the same author, sort by title. Articles (a, an, and the) are not considered when alphabetizing.
