“Huey, Louie, and Melvil?” is a wordplay on the names of Disney characters Huey, Dewey, and Louie - the nephews of Donald Duck. Dewey has been substituted for Melvil in reference to Melvil Dewey (1851 – 1931), the creator of the Dewey Decimal Classification (also known as the Dewey Decimal System). The Dewey Decimal System is the most widely used library classification scheme in the world. It uses a numbering system to divide books into basic classes organized by field of study. The Dewey Decimal System was developed in 1873 and continues to be used in libraries today.
