Ethothepi: I understood there was some sort of official process, and that the Dewey classification system had to be purchased in some way, as a license (this is what one of our techs indicated to me). While I work in a library, I am not a librarian by education or training (I just know where to shelve stuff and how to help patrons find it).
Maybe I'll ask my coworker, who does have an MLS degree…

In any case, if I had my way, my library would be shelved by fiction genres (like a book store) as well as a (more sensible) non-fiction classification system than what we use now.

Are your historical novels in with the history books of the same period? I.e., War & Peace in with your Chandler and Nosworthy and Napoleonic Ospreys? Red Badge of Courage between Catton and Foote? Hornblower and Aubrey/Maturin novels in with your History of the British Navy? You get the idea.
