About the Author
Wayne A. Wiegand is F. William Summers Professor of Library and Information Studies Emeritus at Florida State University. Often referred to as "the Dean of American library historians," he is author of many scholarly articles and books, including Irrepressible Reformer: A Biography of Melvil Dewey, Part of Our Lives: A People's History of the American Public Library, and American Public School Librarianship: A History.
Reviews
"Of particular interest to technical services librarians is how Wiegand traces the evolution of Dewey's work in classification and cataloging from its inception at Amherst to its successful implementation at Columbia."
"Finally, Melvil Dewey fully revealed, in entertaining prose, built on rigorous and deep historical scholarship. This is the definitive biography we've missed for so long."
