Abstract
The DDC has faced the problem of innovation in knowledge organization since it first appeared 120 years ago. During its first 75 years, the DDC took 2 different approaches that in retrospect proved to be wrong ones. In the last 45 years, however, the system has developed an approach to innovation that can serve as a model of how knowledge organization should be revised. This approach is illustrated by a review of the 3 major revisions appearing this year in ed.21. The specific problems found in revising the life sciences in 4560-590 are reviewed in detail
