The Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC), published by OCLC and continuously revised to keep pace with recorded knowledge, is the world’s most widely used library classification system. The 23rd print edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification, DDC 23, was published in 2011.
The DDC Editorial Policy Committee (EPC) is a ten-member international board whose main function is to advise the DDC editors and OCLC on matters relating to changes, innovation and the general development of the DDC. Nominated by various organizations, EPC members represent the interests of libraries around the world as they guide the ongoing development of the DDC.
