"Think of the Dewey Decimal System. You look up a book you want, you might find something else of interest right beside it. Way cool for more than a century. With Dewey, we can stumble upon things that will help us. Same with Cyndi. We go to the subject in question and look around. It's a great way to discover new sources." --Dave O.
