Ask the Experts: How You Can Make Dewey Better
Dewey editors explain how to volunteer to improve Dewey
The Dewey editors are working to make the Dewey Decimal Classification more transparent and more responsive to your needs. We rely on suggestions for improvements from the community, which can include expanding subject areas, clarifying instructions, relocating topics, and more. In this session, we’ll talk about why your expertise in libraries is incredibly valuable and how you can make Dewey better for library users around the world!
How you can be a part of revising Dewey:
- review proposals to change the DDC and share your thoughts
- receive draft proposals via email and help shape their development
- develop your own suggestions for changing Dewey into formal proposals
