Do We Dewey?

Here's a public library that is leaving the Dewey Decimal system behind in favor of a more "Barnes & Noble" approach. The new Perry Branch of the Maricopa County Library District outside Phoenix. No card catalog, no numbers. Their director, Harry Courtright states that most people don't know what the numbers stand for anyway. Rather, books are shelved in subject "neighborhoods."
