I'll bet he ain't.
He's using DDC 21, locally modified in certain areas to reflect local needs and quirks. But he's thinking about going to either UDC or, perhaps, Ranganathan's Colon Classification or even resurrecting Charles Aimee Cutter's Expansive Classification. ANSCR hasn't been updated so that it's feasible in the current musical environment, so that's out for sound recordings (although it was excellent in it's day).
Besides, LC's too complex for a middle-sized public library. It's in use up at the Oboler Library at ISU, though. And probably in the library out at INEEL.
