Is Dewey Still Serving Us Well?

Michael addresses some interesting points. I’m fascinated by his thoughs on stickers and labels. Do we really need all the stickers we put on materials? How many colored dots, labels and barcodes does one item need?

I’ll be interested to watch the discussions about classification play out. I’d still like to somehow see the library’s collection represented as a Tag Cloud that would show us the way to the materials we want.
