DDC number building for shelf arrangement:  DDC number building for shelf arrangement Julianne Beall Assistant Editor, DDC Library of Congress July 4, 2006 Vienna Broad outline:  Broad outline Part 1. Elements of typical call numbers Part 2. Class numbers Part 3. Book numbers and other methods of subarrangement Part 1. Elements of typical call numbers:  Part 1. Elements of typical call numbers Call number = class number + book number (or other method of alphabetic subarrangement) Example: 641.5972 .B3433 Call number :  Call number A set of letters, numerals or other symbols (in combination or alone) used by a library to identify a specific copy of a work. A call number consists of the class number and book number (or Cutter number). It may also contain other data such as date, volume number, copy number and location symbol. Class number:  Class number Notation that designates the class to which a given item belongs. Example: 641.5972 Cooking characteristic of Mexico Used for Rick Bayless's Mexican kitchen : capturing the vibrant flavors of a world-class cuisine Book number :  Book number The part of a call number that distinguishes a specific item from other items within the same class number, also called a Cutter number. A book number is composed of letters from the author's name and numbers. Example: .B3433 for Bayless, Rick From OCLC Cutter Four-Figure Table Other method of alphabetic subarrangement:  Other method of alphabetic subarrangement Instead of formal book numbers, many libraries prefer simple methods of alphabetic subarrangement Example: Bay for Bayless, Rick Part 2. Class numbers:  Part 2. Class numbers Broad classification and logical abridgment Building with tables (numbered auxiliary tables) Building with add tables Building with other add notes Broad classification:  Broad classification The classification of works in broad categories by logical abridgment, even when more specific numbers are available, e.g., the use of 641.5 Cooking instead of 641.5972 Mexican cooking for a cookbook of Mexican recipes. Logical abridgment:  Logical abridgment The abridged number is the same as the full number, but shorter The number is abridged at a logical place Abridged edition:  Abridged edition A shortened version of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system that is a logical truncation of the notational and structural hierarchy of the corresponding full edition on which it is based. The abridged edition is intended for general collections of 20,000 titles or less. Segmentation marks (/ or ‘):  Segmentation marks (/ or ‘) Records from Library of Congress and Library and Archives Canada include segmentation marks in Dewey class numbers These marks show end of abridged number The slash (/) appears in MARC records The prime mark (‘) appears in Cataloging in Publication printed in books Example of segmentation:  Example of segmentation 641.5/6314 The abridged number (641.5) means cooking The full number (641.56314) means cooking for people with diabetes Never include segmentation marks in call numbers Building with tables (numbered auxiliary tables):  Building with tables (numbered auxiliary tables) Numbers from auxiliary tables are never used alone for shelf arrangement They may, however, be used alone in a database for resource discovery Today we won’t be able to cover all six auxiliary tables; we will cover the following tables: Tables to be covered today:  Tables to be covered today Table 2. Geographic Areas, Historical Periods, Persons Table 1. Standard Subdivisions Table 3A. Subdivisions for Works by or about Individual Authors Table 3B. Subdivisions for Works by or about More than One Author Table 5. Ethnic and National Groups Table 2. Geographic Areas, Historical Periods, Persons :  Table 2. Geographic Areas, Historical Periods, Persons The following numbers are never used alone, but may be used as required (either directly when so noted or through the interposition of notation T1—09 from Table 1) with any number from the schedules, e.g., wages (331.29) in Japan (T2—52 in this table): 331.2952 ; railroad transportation (385) in Brazil (T2—81 in this table): 385.0981 641.593-641.599 Cooking characteristic of specific continents, countries, localities:  641.593-641.599 Cooking characteristic of specific continents, countries, localities Add to base number 641.59 notation T2—3-T2—9 from Table 2 , e.g., Southern cooking (United States) 641.5975 T2—75     Southeastern United States (South Atlantic states) Class here southern states 641.59+[T2—]75=641.5975 641.59+[T2—]436=641.59436 (etc.):  641.59+[T2—]436=641.59436 (etc.) 641.59436 Austrian cooking 641.5943613 Cooking of Vienna 641.5944 French cooking 641.59442 Cooking of Normandy 641.59449 Cooking of Provence 641.59+[T2—]45=641.5945 (etc.) :  641.59+[T2—]45=641.5945 (etc.) 641.5945 Italian cooking 641.59455 Cooking of Tuscany 641.59458 Cooking of Sicily 641.595 Asian cooking 641.5951 Chinese cooking 641.5952 Japanese cooking Facet:  Facet Any of the various categories into which a given class may be divided, e.g., division of the class "people" into the categories of ethnicity, age, education and language spoken. Each category contains terms based on a single characteristic of division, e.g., children, adolescents and adults are characteristics of division of the "ages" category. Facet indicator :  Facet indicator A digit used to introduce notation representing a characteristic of the subject. For example, "0" is often used as a facet indicator to introduce standard subdivision concepts. Rule for logical abridgment:  Rule for logical abridgment Never abridge a number so as to leave a “0” or other facet indicator at the end, in the part following the decimal point Dewey numbers may end with “0” before the decimal point Examples: 630 is O.K. 630.90 is not O.K. 630.9 is O.K. Table 1. Standard Subdivisions :  Table 1. Standard Subdivisions The following notation is never used alone, but may be used as required with any regular schedule number, e.g., workbooks (T1—076 in this table) in arithmetic (513): 513.076. When adding to a number from the schedules, always insert a decimal point between the third and fourth digits of the complete number T1—09 Historical, geographic, persons treatment :  T1—09 Historical, geographic, persons treatment T1—092 Persons Biography, autobiography, description and critical appraisal of work, diaries . . .

Ethnic and National Groups :  Table 5. Ethnic and National Groups The following numbers are never used alone, but may be used as required (either directly when so noted or through the interposition of notation T1—089 from Table 1) with any number from the schedules, e.g., civil and political rights ( 323.11 ) of Navajo Indians ( T5—9726 in this table): 323.119726 ; ceramic arts ( 738 ) of Jews ( T5—924 in this table): 738.089924 . They may also be used when so noted with numbers from other tables, e.g., notation T2—174 from Table 2 Table 5. Ethnic and National Groups (2) :  Table 5. Ethnic and National Groups (2) Except where instructed otherwise, and unless it is redundant, add 0 to the number from this table and to the result add notation T2—1 or T2—3-T2—9 from Table 2 for area in which a group is or was located, e.g., Germans in Brazil T5—31081 , but Germans in Germany T5—31 ; Jews in Germany or Jews from Germany T5—924043 305.805-305.89 Specific ethnic and national groups :  305.805-305.89 Specific ethnic and national groups Add to base number 305.8 notation T5—05-T5—9 from Table 5, e.g., comprehensive works on Jews 305.8924, Chinese 305.8951, Chinese Australians 305.8951094, Inuit 305.89712 305.8+[T5—]951+0+[T2—]94= 305.8951094 305.8+[T5—]31 (etc.):  305.8+[T5—]31 (etc.) 305.831 Germans 305.835 Swiss 305.836 Austrians 305.841 French 305.851 Italians 305.8+[T5—]41+0+[T2—]494= 305.8410494:  305.8+[T5—]41+0+[T2—]494= 305.8410494 305.835 Swiss 305.836 Austrians 305.841 French 305.8410494 French-speaking Swiss 305.851 Italians 305.8510494 Italian-speaking Swiss 830.1-838  Subdivisions of German literature :  830.1-838  Subdivisions of German literature Add to base number 83 as instructed at beginning of Table 3, e.g., a collection of German literature 830.8 T3B—08  Collections of literary texts in more than one form 83+[T3B—]08=830.8 Table 3B.
