    On the 26th of February 2019, a  collective discussion was held about how to catalogue books in a school library. The issued criteria are the following:

    1. According to rib book’s colours (Ex.: First shelf for the red books, etc..)
    2. According to the topic (Ex.: Horror, Adventure, etc. ..)
    3. According to the alphabetic order of the book’s title
    4. According to the publishing house
    5. According to the alphabetic order of the authors' names
    6. According to the chronological order of publication
    7. According to the number of pages

    On the 27th of February 2019,  there was a vote for the choice of a common criterion.
    The results were the following:

    In addition to the criterion based on the topic, another secondary criterion was chosen in order to sort the books within each topic: by the number of pages!
