The question has been raised in the Art thread as to the global ambitions of OSC. I have only read a few threads but there does seem to be a US/Eurocentric bias. Hardly surprising given the membership, and not, of itself, wrong but do the originators of OSC have wider ambitions?

Thank you, abbottthomas for starting this thread.
I'll ask the same question that I asked in the Art Level Thread.

>>I realize that Dewey is the most prevalent in terms of classification systems used in the world. My question for OSC members who aren't American is what classification system is used in your public library? Is it useful and/or appropriate for the collection?
