Resources for teachers and students of the DDC

Sometimes you need information about the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system rather than from it—whether you teach library science students, need classification tips or want to know more about DDC founder Melvil Dewey. The resources here can help.

The Dewey blog is a great source for news and views on classification issues, as well as interesting and unusual DDC resources and curiosities. It's also a convenient way to share feedback directly to the DDC editors to help shape the future of the DDC.
