Title
Things are taking a little longer than that : a response to Dewey Decimal Classification in the online environment

Abstract
Librarians are often so eager to adopt new technologies and systems that they can lose sight of the realities that must be dealt with. Among factors that may delay use of Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) for on-line catalogues retrieval are: limited use of DDC in libraries with operational on-line catalogues; limitations to the MARC bibliographic formats: lack of an authority structure for classification number for items catalogued. Factors that may delay development of effective classification retrieval mechanisms include unclear terminology and unreasonably high (or low) expectations.
