Dump Dewey? It’s front page news in Chicago

February 19, 2011

Perhaps today is a particularly slow news day, or maybe it’s because the weekend Saturday edition of the Chicago Trib typically has low circulation, but for some reason, the front page story today is about the move by some public libraries to abandon the Dewey Decimal System in favor of the sort of layout used in most bookstores known as BISAC (Book Industry Standards and Communications). If the trend ever catches on, maybe all those Border’s staffers looking for new jobs will find new careers as library shelvers.
