Two points must be considered on utilizing notation classification on Islam. One is that Indonesia is the largest Islamic country in the world, in which about 90% of 220 million people are Muslims. The other is that Indonesian libraries have been using Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) since early 1950s. From Indonesian librarians point of view, the term used in 15th edition is not appropriate that is Mohammedanism and the notation given is very limited for the second largest denomination in the world. The term then changed to Islam albeit the available notations were still felt not enough for the organization of Islamic books. This paper traces and describes the effort by Indonesian librarians and Islamic libraries to improve the notation 297 of the various editions of the DDC since 1973 to 1987. In 1987 the joint declaration between Minister of Religious Affairs and Minister of Education and Culture issued an adaptation and expansion of the DDC. This version is widely used especially in public and Islamic-based-schools, Islamic higher education institutions, Islamic colleges but not in non-Islamic-denomination academic and special libraries. In 2005 the National Library of Indonesia issued its version based on DDC 22nd edition and the details of this version are explained. Based on the various versions, the authors proposed that the future adaptation and expansion should be based on the original DDC version and with that adaptation then the proposed expansion match with the international usage and practice could contribute to future DDC editions.
