End of Dewey Decimal Classification a Source of Puns

Link to October 10 Albany (NY) Times-Union article, "Its number up, Dewey is 86ed".

A century after Melvil Dewey called Albany and the State Library home, the city's newest public libraries are poised to abandon his famous decimals. The shift starts next month at the overhauled Pine Hills branch, where the book collection will be sorted not by the Dewey Decimal System but by subject categories similar how it's done in most bookstores.

I'm always in favor of library advocates.
