Some important facts about him

Michael Panzer Appointed New DDC Editor in Chief

Life has been a little topsy-turvy of late in Dewey editorial land. After almost 20 years at the helm as Editor in Chief of the DDC, Joan Mitchell retired at the end of last week. This week has seen the appointment of a new Editor in Chief. Quoting from the press release put out by OCLC:

Michael Panzer, formerly Assistant Editor, has been named the 10th Editor-in-Chief of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system.

Mr. Panzer . . . becomes the first DDC Editor-in-Chief from outside the United States.

Mr. Panzer joined OCLC in May 2007 as Global Product Manager of Taxonomy Services, and was appointed Assistant Editor of the DDC in March 2009. From 2002 to 2005, he headed the technical team that translated Dewey into German. He was the first member of a Dewey translation team to be appointed Assistant Editor.

“Michael Panzer is well known and widely respected in the worldwide Dewey and Semantic Web communities,” said Jay Jordan, President and CEO, OCLC. “We look forward to his making the DDC ever more useful, to paraphrase Melvil Dewey, in new and imaginative ways.”

Mr. Panzer served on the W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group, and is currently a member of the W3C Provenance Working Group.

Prior to joining OCLC, Mr. Panzer worked at Cologne University of Applied Sciences, where he was team leader of CrissCross, a research project funded by the German Research Foundation focused on mapping SWD, DDC, RAMEAU, and LCSH. He has an MA from Heinrich Heine University (Düsseldorf) in German Literature with a minor in Information Science. He also attended the University of California, Davis, on a four-month research scholarship.

Well written...

Thank u.

Thank you for the valuable information.

Sir,

I am working in a reputed engineering college in kerala as Asst. Librarian. I have a doubt related with the assigning of book number, books without author and Editor, we are assigning the Book number is the First three letters of Publisher in the following scheme of our library is DDC.
     For example: Title:  "Gate books in electrical engineering"
                 Publisher : G. K Publications
                            Call number:  Class number +GKP
 In some libraries found that textbook without Author or editor but the book is already had publisher if, they are assigned the Book number is first three letters of Title.  Kindly give anybody the clarification for this matter it is a right or wrong with supporting documents or rules for classification of DDC. which is the globally accepted format for DDC
Yours faithfully
