973.932 The Next Step in History



A recent event caused the need for a new Dewey Classification number - 973.932.
It is a fine tuning of a much broader view found in 973.93 and will go into effect soon.

Can you determine how these numbers are related?
973.931
973.929
973.928
973.927

Care to make a guess in a comment? Bonus points for the exact date!
Our catalog won't help too much because of our "rule" for the benefit of our patrons, but our friends at Houston Public Library (any public library actually) can provide sources for your research!

If you want to take the easy way out and peek, you can go here for the answer to the first part. The other pieces should then fall into place just like a nice stack of dominoes

Who said cataloging can't be fun?!

The new number would be for Obama's administration. It would take effect on his inauguration, January 20, 2009. The other numbers are for other presidents' administrations (but I have no idea who is who).
