Description: SCP-910 is a 156-page book titled Organizational Symbology: New Tools for the Oldest Craft, which describes methods to transform mundane organizations into anomalous entities for use in thaumaturgic rituals. Approximately 10 copies of SCP-910 have been published yearly since 1955 by the Penn & Brooke Scribeworks (GoI-154.) The author is listed as Erin Ahmadi, whose back-cover biography describes as a self-taught thaumaturgist and amateur botanist living in Hell, Michigan. No records of this individual have been found.

The body of SCP-910's text is based on the theory that groups of humans organized according to specific principles can fill roles in rituals traditionally held by biological or mineral components. For example: An organization may fill the need for a physical circle that would otherwise be drawn in chalk or blood. Such a substitution is argued to greatly increase the efficacy of the augmented ritual. These augmented organizations often exhibit anomalous effects in the course of their normal operation, some of which are further documented within SCP-910.

Seven of the book's nine chapters depict different structures of organizations, outlining them through a combination of thaumaturgic jargon and elaborate metaphors. The presentation of ritual construction and execution throughout the book bear trace similarities to the teachings of the Three River School, which emphasizes the need for balance of power across spell systems.

Tests of SCP-910's outlines have produced varied results. Organizations structured in accordance with chapters 3, 7 and 8 have generated significant anomalous effects. Organizations structured in accordance with chapters 2 and 6 have generated minor and inconsistent anomalous effects. The contents of chapters 4 and 5 produced no discernible results during testing. On average, the organizations generating the strongest anomalous effects produced the largest improvement in the results of rituals.
