[InetBib] EDUG Conference 2010

Dear colleagues, 


In cooperation with the Biblioteca Alexandrina in Alexandria , Egypt , the 
European DDC Users? Group (EDUG) is organizing its annual meeting and would 
like to invite you to the symposium 


Bridging the class(ification) divide: the new DDC languages and retrieval 


27 April 2010, 9:30 a.m. ? 4:00 p.m. 

Biblioteca Alexandrina 

Alexandria, Egypt 


Over the past ten years, extensive translation projects have been completed in 
Europe to produce the French, Italian and German editions of DDC21 and DDC22. 
Experience has shown that the translation and adaptation of the DDC in the 
European context can be difficult. Recent work on the Arabic translation has 
also exposed some problems. EDUG works in partnership with OCLC to foster 
cooperation in the development of DDC translations and resolve associated 
issues for mutual benefit. 


The presentations of the symposium will focus on the use(s) of Dewey in an 
international and multilingual context. Translation and cooperation from 
various points of view will be highlighted as well as technical issues and the 
development of the DDC as a tool for subject information retrieval.
