What happened that there appeared to be a change in the classification number for computers a few years ago from the 600's ?...

Where around the web would there be a detailed explication of why and about the change?...

Hi there, just discovered this blog and found this post particularly interesting. As a former--maybe future-- cataloger (could only find full time reference work!) this sort of question is fascinating. My inclination would be to put works on the current 'war on terrorism' in 363.32 as a social problem, treated similarly to the 'war on drugs.' That's where I would look for them anyhow. Thanks for asking for comments and I'll be sure to add this blog to my feed to keep up on Dewey while in this reference position!
