Dewey or Do We Not - G version

Marshall Shore, from the Maricopa County Library, was coming to Chicago to talk about innovation and design thinking in libraries.
You may have read about him here.
Or listened to him here.
Or viewed him here.
Marshall talked about things the folks at his library have done with designing spaces and systems for users, including the Deweyless library. He also engaged the class with some ideas about taping into user wants, user behaviors and emerging trends. How can we design the best libraries to fit the needs of the community? Moreover, what does the importation of classification models from bookshops say about the commodification of user behaviour and emerging 2.0 trends?
