Library, part II

Consider Mr. Melville Dewey, founder of the Dewey Decimal book classification system. He has had an affect on every single library user around the world who walked thorugh the stacks searching for a book. His goal was nothing less than to take the sum total of written academic language and categorize, classify, and prioritize it all.

I am fascinated about what he boosted, what he marginalized, and what he ignored entirely.
