Death to the Dewey Decimal System… Maybe?

Hey team, despite my inflammatory title here I want to say that I haven’t made up my mind about the use of the Dewey Decimal System.  In any case, I absolutely applaud Maricopa County Library for taking a risk and trying to see what happens without the Dewey Decimal System.  I spoke with a couple of folks from this library at a conference in 2008 and they said it was a fantastic decision.  So… they’re two years into this and I have family living in Maricopa County and I’m hoping I can take a trip down there and see how the patrons are liking it.  After all, that’s who its all for.    But if you are the last librarian on the planet to hear about this, here is a great interview from NPR to fill you in – It’s audio of course since text is dead as a medium on the internet anyway. –
