Dewey Decimal Time!

In tribute to one of my favorite sections of Cataloguing:

(You may have to copy and paste this; my blogging software refused to accept this as a valid url in an “a href” element.)

Ah, I love Dewey. Did you know that 910.41 is for “travels around the world?” It is. Isn’t that awesome?

I’m going to go lay down now.

Update: Phil pointed out that I should have told you what the Dewey Decimal in the video means. Well, it sadly appears to be a made up number (and I’ve never seen a Cutter (“SOB”) like that before). 616.722 isn’t in anything I can find, but 616.72 is for Ophthalmology – specifically “Diseases of uveas.” Not exactly a section with books about “American Girls,” but okay.
