Read in May, 2008

This was remarkably fun for being work-related. A lot of familiar names from library school -- Linnaeus, Mortimer Adler, Valdis Krebs. Lumpers and splitters. We didn't learn about interwingularity, though. Or, sadly, Freiherr Samual von Pufendorf. The 'it looks like chaos but it still works' angle was reassuring.
