Abstract
To describe how the Dewey Decimal Classification is used in the Asia-Pacific region is an enormous task. In my paper I will be able to do little more than summarise the situation, perhaps providing a few highlights that may illuminate general trends. The Asia Pacific region, if it is defined as including East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific region, is an area which includes more than half the population of the world-more than three billion people. There are wide differences in the region: - In economic development, with the region including advanced industrial economies like Australia, Japan, and Singapore, and less developed economies, that have been held back by colonialism and war; - In cultures, with the region including countries with ancient civilisations such as those of China, India, and Japan, and countries strongly influenced by Western European and North American civilisation; - In general levels of education, particularly literacy rates, which vary from country to country in the region from 20 percent to nearly 100 percent; and - In languages: Across the region, a large variety of languages are used, and even within some countries (such as India and Papua New Guinea) there may be dozens or even hundreds of different languages. Not only do these factors make it difficult to generalise about the region, but these factors all affect the development of libraries in general, and the library classification schemes used in particular.
