- Those who examine Dewey numbers carefully for accuracy, and report suspected errors to LC's Decimal Classification Division (which can be done by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org). Such people may send a copy of their report to me, and I'll forward it to the people in group 2.Those who work at institutions where Dewey numbers assigned at LC are accepted without question (a practice I don't recommend), so that they can learn about errors reported by the people in group 1.

The "Dewey Error Notification List" is intended to notify people who classify materials using DDC numbers which the Library of Congress has assigned in the bibliographic records they so kindly prepare and distribute. Occasionally, errors may occur in such records. Depending on how you handle quality control, you may wish to participate in the list, which I maintain privately. Are you a member of one of the following two groups of people? If so, please contact me as below.
