This is a compilation of papers from an international group of researchers and practitioners assembled by OCLC research scientist Diane Vizine-Goetz and DDC editor-in-chief Joan Mitchell. The papers explore the Dewey Decimal System (DDS) from a variety of perspectives, with a focus on "peeling away the presentation layer" - the familiar linear notational sequence - to reveal "the content and context" offered by the DDS in practice.
