Another article, articulating the "Everything is Miscellaneous" manifesto:


The ultimate dream of the "Piler" approach to stuff - although the article
really deal with interlibrary loan or federated and fully distributed
sites.  The antithesis of the "Filer" approach to stuff.  Any "Filer" that
his or her personal library and research notes will feel that this approach
conducts them
to the lowest circle of Dante's story and chained there.  Library
classifiers might fear
becoming unemployed.

Before then, readers might make the book from which this
article is excerpted a minor best-seller.  ["This Book is Overdue" may be
of some
interest from a nonfiction point of view, although it doesn't have an index
so it
must be nonscholarly nonfiction.  Petroski's "The Book on the Bookshelf"
a rather interesting history of the bookshelf and chained books.  For
readers who
prefer fiction, see the novel "Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore" by Robin
