Ranganathan audio: speech about Melvil Dewey

I digitized a 1964 talk by Ranganathan about Melvil Dewey, and have made 
it available as an MP3:


It's 6 MB and 15 minutes long.  Ranganathan never met Dewey, but they did 
correspond.  Dewey wanted Ranganathan to help him improve his 
classification system but died before the first edition of COLON 
CLASSICATION was published.  Ranganathan recounts this and some other 
ancedotes.  I was glad when I found the old cassette tape of the speech 
and could hear Ranganathan talk.
