Just to add two small extra bits of information. Most Australian university
libraries use LCC.

The Australian Government uses neither LC nor Dewey, but a specific RFCD
classification (RFCD = Research Fields, Courses and Disciplines) developed
by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. See
http://www.research.utas.edu.au/publications/docs/14_rfcd.doc. All
repositories in Australia end up having the RFCD embedded in them (not LCC)
so they can link with research reporting. So JISC with Dewey is not so
bizarre after all.

 "why Dewey anyway, since almost all large Uni libraries use LCC?"

True, most U.S. University libraries use LCC, but is that the case in
other countries' 
University libraries?? Also, I'm glad you noted 'most', John, instead of
all because my one of my alma maters (Purdue University - an American
public university) still uses Dewey.

Interesting. I wonder why EPrints is shipped with a basic LC
classification tree instead?

Also - why Dewey anyway, since almost all large Uni libraries use LCC?
