Pic of Huey and Louie, missing Dewey. That hints to Dewey Decimal classification system, but he's not in the pic, so looked for another library classification system: the Library of Congress (LC) classification. LCC are also the first letters of Leeds City College.

Taking the corresponding classes from LCC:

P Language and Literature
R Medicine
A General Studies
T Technology
C Auxiliary Sciences of History
H Social Sciences
E American History
T Technology

There was only 6 minutes difference in the solve times for the 2 teams, but unfortunately bm didn't have anyone to take pics.
