What's so great about the Dewey Decimal System? A Staff Report from the Straight Dope Science Advisory Board. "Somewhere around 95% of all school libraries and public libraries in the U.S. use Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) ... One of the beauties of Dewey's system is that it provides an easy way to introduce new subjects - there have been lots of new subjects since 1876! The key was the use of decimals.

... Dewey largely created library science and is rightly known as the 'Father of Modern Librarianship.' Without DDC, each library would have to create its own system at vast expense. Now it's a simple matter. That's the reason Dewey is so beloved by librarians.

[Melvil Dewey was born in 1851 in upstate New York]. We feel obliged to note that Dewey was no saint. He was racist, antisemitic, anti-black, anti-everything not white male Anglo-Saxon Christian. He died in 1931."
