Dewey Decimal Classification “By the Numbers” (March 1, 2019)

From 025.431: The Dewey Blog:

DDC 23 EN database (the database associated with the English-language version of DDC 23) as of 1 March 2019.

The biggest change this time around is a large increase in facets, almost 400 since 1 December 2018. Much of that comes from the Historical periods and geographic localities project, which added many internal add tables throughout the 900s.
