Alex Kyrios was recently appointed as an editor of the Dewey Decimal Classification. Based at the Library of Congress, he joins us from the Folger Shakespeare Library. Before that, he was a metadata librarian / cataloger at the University of Idaho. Alex is new to the editor role, but not new to Dewey. Four years ago, Alex was an OCLC intern and worked with us on Abridged Edition 15.
Alex has an MLS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an undergraduate degree in English from the College of William & Mary. Professionally, he's interested in user-focused research, and how cataloging and classification can be more responsive and accessible to users without sacrificing quality. In his spare time, he enjoys board games, tennis, watching soccer, Wikipedia, and playing with his dog Trevor.
