LC Classification

1. General examples, including local additions of "trailing X" and "(LC). "

Note that period before cutter, if present, is retained when a number is copied from 050 or 090 or an 852 0. (The period has been replaced with a space on records converted from Orbis1 (NOTIS). Although these call numbers represent actual records in Voyager, the period may not be present on the actual Voyager records)

LC classification call numbers are assigned first indicator 0. In addition, SML uses first indicator 0 for local classification NJ18 used in SML, Art, Bass Library [CCL], and other locations cataloged by the SML Catalog & Metadata Services.

Atlases follow LC's cartographic material subarrangement. In cases where there is both subarrangement by area and subject, the subject number is appended to the area [subarrangement] number, and the cutter/book number is to the authority responsible for the atlas. "[Cartographic subject numbers]" are not Cutter numbers and have no alphabetical significance."-- Special Instructions and Tables of Subdivisions for Cartographic Materials, Section III .

A PZ class number. SML decision effective Feb. 2005 to accept LC literature classes "as is" without local modification other than trailing X means that PZ numbers are now considered acceptable for items in the SML collections. In this (hypothetical) example, the book number cutters to Slippery slope by the author Lemony Snicket and displays the LC house-style for juvenile book numbers, to which is added trailing X.

2. Local non-standard modifications of LC cutter number practice.

SML (Non-standard modification): LC classification with non-standard cutter insertion (Z9). This practice became obsolete with the Feb. 2005 policy change accepting LC literature call numbers "as is."

5. Oversize (including folios).

  • For items cataloged by SML, note use of ‡m Oversize following the call number when full LC classification or NJ18 is used
  • Note use of ‡k Folio for oversize 40 cm or more height/30 cm or more width (Art: 40/31)
  • For items cataloged by SML, note use of first indicator 0 for NJ18.
  • Note use of ‡k Oversize in Divinity (lsfdiv) example to express oversize.
  • For local classification oversize other than NJ18, see examples under Local Classification
