« Portrait of an editor: Constantin Mazney | Main | LCSH in WebDewey »

Thanks for this opportunity to suggest improvements.
Speaking on behalf of my colleagues and I, we like to see more linking of Library of Congress subject headings to WebDewey and some Australian vernacular equivalents for LCSH terms.
For example, the LCSH term Wildfires and its Australian equivalent Bushfires should link to Dewey 363.379.
Kind regards,


Good idea, Judy! I know there's a general interest in more LCSH mappings. While I can't control LCSH as directly, I'm happy to add Relative Index terms for Australian terminology, both for the benefit of our Australian users and for classifiers everywhere cataloging Australian works.

You should see both of these changes in WebDewey tomorrow--or tomorrow for me, at least, time zones being what they are. :)
