Peeking inside the Dewey Decimal System's history

[Dewey Decimal Filter] Looking for information about the Dewey Decimal System and its history of revisions. In particular: When and why did Mormonism get moved from Dewey Decimal classification 290 (non-Christian religions) to 289 (other Christian denominations)?

Where can an ordinary citizen (a non-librarian) find info on the history of DDS changes? (The Googles, they didn't help.) Admittedly, peeking into the history of the DDS is pretty arcane, but... it is possible, isn't it? (I'm asking for a friend) Note: Not interested in answers about Mormonism.
