Classification in Australia.
McKinlay, John
Despite some inroads by the Library of Congress Classification and short-lived experimentation with Universal Decimal Classification and Bliss Classification, Dewey Decimal Classification, with its ability in recent editions to be hospitable to local needs, remains the most widely used classification system in Australia. Although supplemented at some libraries with specialized classifications for maps, medical, and legal materials, the DDC thus provides an overall picture of uniformity and standardization throughout the national library system.
