Dewey Translators Meeting
IFLA 2009, Milan
25 August 2009
In general, assign a single Dewey number following the same rules you would use for any other work.
Assign additional Dewey numbers in the case of first-of-two, multiple important (predominant) subjects, unclear disciplinary focus, and classifier’s instinct.
While both documents are focused on subject indexing, the first two rules in the overview document are also useful for classification:
Be specific to the overall scope of the material (What the pictures are “of” or depict)
Convey what the pictures are “about” (. . . meaning, purpose, function)
