The Unicycle Page (www.unicycling.org) has been added to the Librarian’s Index
to the Internet:
Now I know this is not the “sexiest” place to show up, like say, “Monster Nude
BMX Cross-Country World” or something, but as a librarian myself I’m happy to
see it there.
And please note that they did not have to create a category for it or force it
into an inappropriate category like “bicycling”, because as masters of the
classification universe that they are, they had just the simple category
Do we have a Dewey decimal category and/or a Library of Congress category?
> Do we have a Dewey decimal category and/or a Library of Congress
There is no Dewey classification number for unicycles; they are lumped under
796.6 which is for generic cycling.
There is a Library of Congress Subject Heading, Unicycles.

If 796.6 is not subdivided, a possible extension could be 796.61 for
unicycling, 796.62 for bicycling, 796.63 for tricycling etc. Puts us
on top where we belong

How do you get a site listed in the Librarian’s Index to the Internet(LII)? It’s not that apparent.
This search index looks much more highbrow that “Google”.

The criteria for listing on the LII are at:
The top line includes the email address for recommending a site for inclusion.
Note that they do not include sites that are purely commercial in nature.
As for staffing and process, that’s at:
It looks like they have 1 full time coordinator, 4 part timers doing editorial
and programming work and a 100+ crew of volunteer librarians locating and
indexing sites. As for how they locate sites other than those that are
recommended I didn’t see it explicitly stated but I bet it’s based on personal
browsing and reading.
