Guidance from the experts
The Dewey Decimal Classification® (DDC) Editorial Policy Committee (EPC) is a ten-member international board whose main function is to advise the DDC editors and OCLC on matters relating to changes, innovations and the general development of the DDC to make it work better for you and your library users. Nominated by various organizations, EPC members represent the interests of libraries around the world as they guide the ongoing development of the DDC.
EPC members value input from other librarians, so please contact any of them to discuss DDC-related concerns.
