Below is a short Cutter table (taken from Subject Cataloging Manual : Shelflisting instruction sheet G 60) for use
as a guide.
Note: the final Cutter number is based on entries already found in the shelflist (and in some cases entries reserved for other libraries for which LC does not have an item in its catalog).
The letters in the table represent the letter that follows the initial letter of the author's surname (vowel, consonant, etc.). The number is that which should be used; however, it may be necessary to add other numbers or to use judgement to allow for growth when providing numbers for extremely common names.
Easy to use interface: Displays results directly after the input.
