DeweyDigger; Re-inventing Dewey’s Taxonomy

  • DeweyDigger.com is a visual search portal where you can “Explore knowledge via the Dewey Decimal Classification; just clickety-click.”  On the splash page you are presented with the main Dewey Numbers and an ever-changing interactive panorama showing images from these listings.

A list of sub-categories will then open from which you can select

Next you need to click on an image to access a cloud tag of terms in that call number. Note for those unfamiliar with tag clouds, the size of the text indicates the number of items referred to under each term.
