Abstract
Options currently provided in the Dewey Decimal Classification system are reviewed. Options are an appropriate mechanism in a general purpose classification used by different kinds and sizes of libraries around the world. Dewey provides the universal option of close versus broad classification. Options also are provided to give emphasis to jurisdiction; racial, ethnic, or national group; language; topic; or other specific characteristics. Various devices are detailed or suggested to introduce options. Options may be an impediment to retrieval of information across systems. Options should not be introduced as a substitute for the appropriate placement of a topic in the Classification. Options help accommodate cultural differences in the Classification, and provide a mechanism for emphasizing topics of local importance.
