Moving beyond the presentation layer : Content and context in the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system, Joan S. Mitchell and Diane Vizine-Goetz, (Eds)

Mandy Wood


This is a compilation of papers from an international group of researchers and practitioners assembled by OCLC research scientist Diane Vizine-Goetz and DDC editor-in-chief Joan Mitchell. The papers explore the Dewey Decimal System (DDS) from a variety of perspectives, with a focus on "peeling away the presentation layer" - the familiar linear notational sequence - to reveal "the content and context" offered by the DDS in practice.
