Question:

Should STEM majors have to take a writing course in college or is it a waste of their time?

Answer:

With email, reporting, and presentations being a common part of modern worklife, it seems as though it would be beneficial for all college students to continue taking writing courses. With this in mind, it may be more beneficial for there to be a course offering such as "business writing" to focus on these matters rather than solely the traditional English 101 and Creative Writing courses.

Question:

Is it time to retire or replace the Dewey system?

Answer:

The purpose of a classification system is to provide clarity and ease of access for library users. In my experience, the Dewey system is inherently flawed on the clarity front; it is not uncommon to see topical materials found in two separate sections due to the Dewey numbers assigned to them. The Library of Congress system is a significantly better system on that front. However, for patron ease of access, the subject category system is gaining traction. This system is extremely paired down and groups materials into "categories" such as animals, American history, poetry, etc. Each category can be divided further as needed for the collection, but directing the average user to a call number of "American History 1800-1850: Smith" is much user friendlier than 740.04 Smith.

Question:

If social media content creators are producing much of the same content that Shakespeare did, does this mean that Shakespeare is now unnecessary and outdated?

Answer:

I would posit that this is not an entirely valid argument. One could argue that perhaps Shakespeare, along with much of the Western canon, could be re-examined with a more critical eye towards how much of their impact may have been partially due to being white and/or male. However, when an author has an impact such that their works, words, and tropes are common parts of daily life, it is difficult to dismiss that author as outdated.
