Using Dewey to Improve Access to Fiction
  • Julianne Beall

  • Diane Vizine-Goetz
  • OCLC Research

2
Fiction broad and narrow definitions
  • Broad definition
  • Stories of imagined events, e.g., novels, short
    stories, fairy tales, fables, films, comics,
    interactive fiction
  • Narrow definition
  • Fictional prose--only novels or short stories

3
OCLC FictionFinder uses narrow definition
  • Good representation of textual novels and short
    stories
  • Inconsistent, limited coverage of fiction in
    poetry and drama, comics and graphic novels
  • No coverage of television and films
  • Based on MARC coding for fiction in existing
    catalog records

4
FictionFinder
  • Slide 1
  • A search for Jane Austen in FictionFinder
    illustrates the prototypes good coverage of
    textual novels
  • Slide 2
  • A search for Fantastic four illustrates the
    uneven coverage of comics and graphic novels

Comic books graphic novels
  • Many works and editions are missing from
    FictionFinder because Literary form not coded
    fiction or comic strips
  • For example, Fantastic four into the breach is
    missing, but would be included if FictionFinder
    used a broader definition of fiction

8
Expanding coverage of FictionFinder
  • This study aims to expand the coverage of
    FictionFinder
  • To include fiction in comics, graphic novels,
    television, and films
  • For people interested in finding a good story,
    regardless of form or format
  • Using the Dewey Decimal Classification

9
Dewey categories
  • This study also seeks to display results in
    categories based on Dewey numbers in records,
    e.g.
  • English fiction
  • Comics and graphic novels
  • Movies and films
  • Television

10
Live Search
  • Slide 1
  • The Live Search prototype, developed by Thom
    Hickey, presents the results of a search for
    Jane Austen categorized by Dewey
  • Slide 2
  • The results list is limited to Public
    Performances (DDC 791) which includes a BBC
    television production and a film version of Pride
