Friday Fun: Netflix Classification System

Take The Onion and the Chronicle of Higher Education and mash them up and you get CronkNews.  Once you understand that, it isn’t surprising then to see the article, Librarians Abandon Dewey Decimal System in Favor of Netflix Categories.  It makes for a quick fun read just before the weekend. 

It also gets me thinking how the Netflix Category Classification System would work in the medical libraries. 😉

  1. I love this – I only discovered last week that Netflix actually has a hierarchical subject authority file which helped me to refine my searches to more closely meet my entertainment needs.

  2. Thanks for spreading the word. We hope we can provide more library-related articles this year in anticipation of our first ACRL conference next spring.
