Tuesday Thingers

Prior to today, were you aware of Open Shelves Classification? Have you helped to classify any books yet? Is this something you are interested in? Did you know that if you classify any books, it will also show you who else has classified the book?
Nope, not at all. Although on LibraryThing I recently recall seeing some sort of table at the bottom of some works I have searched. Looking up Conceit by Mary Novik, I see the text "The first test round has been closed. Visit the Open Shelves Classification group for details." I have not classified any books yet but I would love to do so!! I am totally strict about organization, my desk, my home, bookshelves, computer files. I use Bookpedia to catologue all my books and I classify some areas of my bookshelves.
In University I took Library Science 2000, a very cool class...and we had to learn all about classification, referencing and the Dewey Decimal system...sometimes I get bugged at work for this. :)
I wish I had known about this feature earlier...ostrich syndrom I guess. I have joined the group so I can be involved in future endeavors.
