Wikibooks Stacks

Wikibooks Stacks is the book sorting mechanism for Wikibooks. Here is a hierarchical arrangement of all the books on English Wikibooks (currently 3200 of them), managed by Wikibookian curators with some semi-automated help.

Library stacks.

At the top level, our stacks are arranged into departments — humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and so on. All the sectional units of the hierarchy below that level are called shelves, on which the books are found. Most departments have a top-level shelf shown for general references, and other top-level shelves which are more specific. Shelves may also contain subsection shelves, for the further sorting of shelves.

It takes its name from the stacks of a library, which are the book storage areas, with row upon row of bookshelves tightly packed together.
