brief article discussion!
"Criss-crossed with categories, the library is a highly classified space that contains representations of reality within a rigorous structure that is informed by and productive of other social spaces and identities."
"...Where subject headings fix books in stable intellectual space, call numbers fix them in physical space. Each subject heading is correlated with a number that places the book in linear order on library shelves.
This is an inescapable material constraint; each book can occupy one and only one space on a library shelf."
not always straightforward...
What topics are on surrounding shelves in reference vs. regular stacks?
What about genres? What's different in reference vs. stacks?
COME BACK IN 20 MINUTES! (+ use the bathroom, drink water, etc.)
Line up your books in call number order.
