Title:Major classification systems : the Dewey Centennial. Papers presented at the 21st Allerton Park Institute
Contributor(s):Henderson, Kathryn Luther
Subject(s):Classification, Dewey decimal --Congresses
Classification --Congresses
Abstract:One hundred years ago, in 1876, Melvil Dewey anonymously published the first edition of his classification system. Forest Press, publisher of the Dewey Decimal Classification since 1931, could think of no more suitable way to honor the DDC and its author during this centennial year than to bring together librarians interested in classification. It was with great pleasure, therefore, that Forest Press welcomed the opportunity to cosponsor with the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library Science the twenty-first annual Allerton Park Institute. Held on November 9-12, 1975, the topic of the institute was, most appropriately, "Major Classification Systems: the Dewey Centennial."
