      There's a subscription-based one available from the Library of Congress called "Classification Web," but it's still $ / year and it's just based on statistical mapping, so it's not always that accurate. (LC and Dewey are different enough beasts that you can't always get consistent mapping from one number to another.). The published Library of Congress classification schedules are used to determine these. A master set of LC schedules, including cumulative updates, is kept in the shelflist area. Note that the classification may include a subarrangement, i.e., a topical, geographic or biographical cutter.

      You should try not to shelve books or shelf-read when you are very tired. Move through the stacks from left to right, and top to bottom by short shelves. It is a good idea to take a quick survey of the shelves to get a sense of the physical extent of the alpha-range you're looking at so you won't inadvertently jump to the next subject letter.
