Hi, I'm a librarian from Brazil. Do you have the DDC 23 in portuguese? It´s possible to order from here?


How will this affect the notion of DDC edition numbers?
(For example, the ǂ2 value in a MARC 082 field.)

L'ASTED détient encore de nombreuses copies des 4 volumes de l'éditions DDC 23 en Français.

As for the question on edition numbers: for the time being, everything remains ǂ2 23. This is consistent with the fact that changes have been distributed via WebDewey in the past, while retaining the same edition number. Indeed, the print DDC 23 was just a snapshot from a certain point in time; DDC 23 has always been dynamic. Sometime in the future, however, how we designate editions/versions may change.
