Title
DDC21 and beyond : the Dewey Decimal Classification prepares for the future

Abstract
The Dewey Decimal Classification is preparing for the future in a number of ways. Editorial work is supported by a UNIX-based system and access to online bibliographic databases. Two editions of Electronic Dewey have been published and a Windows version is under development The Classification is continuously revised to keep pace with knowledge. Various changes have been introduced to address classifier convenience, modern classification design principles, and electronic distribution. A Dewey research agenda has been identified to guide future development and explore new opportunities. I will describe a few of the changes underway and suggest some questions to guide future directions for the Dewey Decimal Classification.
