Over five years ago a few public libraries made the bold move to a Subject Based Classification System. This panel will review the current state of affairs for subject based classification systems in public libraries. Has the interest diminished or is it going strong? Our panel will review the pros and cons of Subject Based Classification system as well as what it takes to move from your current Dewey Decimal Classification system to a subject based system to determine what a library needs to make this move. Finally we will introduce the concept of a Dewey to Subject Based Classification Bridge to determine if such a product would enhance a libraries experience when making that transition.
