If You Knew Dewey by Sarah Prescott, School Library Journal. "Melvil Dewey, the father of modern librarianship, was one strange guy. But his classification system is still used in most of the world."
Let's "Dew" It from ThinkQuest. Explains the difference between 500 and 600 in the Dewey Decimal System. "The 500's are Natural Science and the 600's are Applied Science. This means the 500's are unchanged science, things as they are found in nature. The 600's are inventions and technology, and how man uses nature." Also discusses General-to-Specific and the Drop-Back Theory.
