The Dewey jour­ney in Europe – a case study of clas­si­fi­ca­tion in the 21st century

7 April 2010, 9:30 a.m. – 4:15 p.m.

Kungl. biblio­te­ket - National Library of Sweden, Stockholm, Sweden

The Dewey deci­mal clas­si­fi­ca­tion (DDC) isone of the most widely used clas­si­fi­ca­tion sys­tems in Europe, and more coun­tries and libra­ries are adopting DDC every year. This European jour­ney invol­ves both the app­li­ca­tion of DDC for retrie­val in European libra­ries and the trans­la­tion, deve­lop­ment and main­ten­ance of DDC from dif­fe­rent European coun­tries’ per­spec­tives. What has hap­pened with the DDC and with the libra­ries during this jour­ney: inter­na­tio­na­li­sa­tion, Europeanisation, loca­li­sa­tion? EDUG works in part­nership with OCLC to fos­ter coope­ra­tion in the deve­lop­ment of DDC trans­la­ti­ons and resolve asso­cia­ted issues for mutual benefit.

The sym­po­sium will pre­sent cases from Sweden, Great Britain, France, Germany and Austria. Our keynote speaker Joacim Hansson will give us a his­to­ri­cal pre­sen­ta­tion on the choice of clas­si­fi­ca­tion sche­mes and the under­ly­ing ideas behind them.

You will find the pro­gramme and fur­ther infor­ma­tion under

Please regis­ter by 24 March 2011. There is no fee for the symposium.
