THE REVISION OF THE DECIMAL CLASSIFICATION

THE REVISION OF THE DECIMAL CLASSIFICATION In 1876 Melvil Dewey published the first edition of the Decimal Classifica tion. Through the years the great advances in all fields of knowledge have necessitated thirteen revisions. Work on the fifteenth or Standard Edition is now in progress. When it appears, probably late in 1947, it will be a com plete revision and will restore Melvil Dewey's original conception of the classification as one primarily concerned with the classification of books. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Documentation Emerald Publishing
