Our library is looking for ways to streamline cataloging workload. One
option is to accept Dewey subject classification numbers for biographies
on imported catalog records. Has any library done this?  Does it seem
beneficial for patrons to find biographies under the subject of the life
work of the person or is a section reserved specifically for biographies
more patron friendly? We use Ingram for purchasing and processing.
