The View from the Editor's Chair Dewey Decimal Classification 16 to 19 by Benjamin A Custer( Book )

The retiring editor of Dewey Decimal Classification recounts the development of the system from the 16th through the 19th editions, i.e., 1956-1980. During this period, the system has undergone major changes to internationalize its character. Special provisions have been incorporated for branches of history, geography, language, literature, the arts, philosophy, and religion that were of little or no concern to American libraries in 1876, and detailed tables of areas, and of racial, ethnic, and national groups have been added. International cooperative and consultative arrangements have been established and maintained in matters of editorial policy. Modernization has resulted in both substantive and organizational changes. Substantive improvements include the reexamination and reclassification in such areas as women, sex, ethnicity, and religion. Organizational improvements have moved the system from a series of pigeonholes to a rational coherent structure characterized by subject integrity and predictable subject relationships. The paper concludes with a series of anecdotes recalling some of the frustrations and rewards of editorial direction. (RAA)
