Bringing Cataloging Back to the People
In addition to teaching classes on finding pornography more efficiently, I think it would also be appropriate if we started cataloging really good porn sites, so the perverts could have the benefit of having really well organized librarians sift and classify their websites. Think of the time web-surfing it would save the perverts. Save the time of the reader, right? Isn't that what Ranganathan would say? We could get that radical cataloger guy Bernie Sanders to take subject headings back to the people. Think how nice it would be for the perverts to find a subject heading like "Oral Sex -- Asian Fetishism -- Web Sites." The only drawback I can see is that they might get so excited they would drool even more on the keyboards.
