  • The world wide web is a collection of web pages published by anyone with access to a computer and the Internet. Some of these pages are indexed and cataloged to make searching easier. There is no process a web page has to go through to be published. It is up to the end-user to determine relevance, authority, and/or bias. There is usually no cost associated with accessing most web pages.<br /><br/>

  • A database is a collection of previously published material, usually articles from magazines, newspapers, and/or journals. These articles have been indexed and cataloged in a way that makes searching for relevant material an easier process. Articles in a database have been through a process that determines them to be relevant, authoritative, and of high-quality. Databases, more often than not, cost money and require some sort of authentication.<br /><br/>

    Each major category divides into nine sub-categories spanning a range of 10 to 90.
    Each sub-category is further divided into nine specialized topics ranging from 1 to 9:
    By adding decimals, the specialized topics are broken down even further:

    So that The Dewey Decimal System is a hierarchical system, in which the arrangement of books on the shelves moves from the general to the specific.<br /><br/>
