|Title:||Looking back to Dewey's notation after hundred years|
|Authors:||Sen, Subir Kumar|
|Abstract:||The present study starts with a review of materials at hand and makes some enquiries upon the process leading to the discovery of Dewey's scheme of classification and its socio-cultural background and puts the use of Decimal notation as the pivot of the scheme. It then goes on to analyze the properties of notation in general and examines Dewey's notation against them. Also suggests some possible notational systems which may be experimented with for retrieval purpose.|
