Draft of DDC Revisions

It takes a special kind of geek to be both a library geek and a comic book geek. Thankfully, I fit that description.

If you do too, or if you're just interested in the minutia of Dewey Decimal Classification, then you may be interested in the fact that OCLC has released the Draft schedule 741.5 Cartoons, caricatures, comics, graphic novels, fotonovelas.

They've moved a couple of things around and clarified several things in the notes, including explaining what I call the 'Neil Gaiman problem'. (Gaiman is an English author, but most of his works were published by American publishers--so if you're categorizing geographically, where does Sandman go?)
