Library history and Dewey Decimal

I just thought I’d point out that you’ve been linked to in Libraryland by Walt Crawford, quite the respected commentator on libraries and copyright issues, in the March 2006 issue of his Cites and Insights. He calls those two articles “seriously good stuff on a popular but not dumbed-down level”.

The whole issue is PDF, but the mention of the Straight Dope column is available in HTML form under “The Library Stuff”.

Thanks for calling our attention to that, Zsofia, much appreciated.
The Staff Reports are, of course:

Straight Dope Staff Report: How did public libraries get started? and What’s so great about the Dewey Decimal System?

The author of those Staff Reports is proud and pleased at the reference. He’ll have a swollen head for weeks, and be intolerable to be around, I’m sure.

I think that falls under subclass 139.
