Tips for shelving East Asian books

Understanding the LC call number adopted by the East Asian Collection

Basic rule for shelving: Chinese and Japanese books are intershelved.

Sample

Author: Andrew Rawlinson

Call Number:
UniM Bail EA
BL
1032
RAWL
1998

 

Components of a LC call number adopted by the East Asian Collection

LC Classification    call number sample

Explanation

Location

Location codes adopted by the Library

UniM    Bail EA

 

LC Classification

The first line of a call number may begin with one, two or three letters. These letters should be read alphabetically. A Call    Number that begins with A is shelved before one that begins with B, C, etc.; and a Call Number that begins with QE is shelved before the one that starts with QL. Single letters are filed before double letters.

Shelving order should be like:

A

B

BL

DC

DS

N

NA

BL

The first two lines describe the subject of the book

BL1032 = Asia--Religion, spiritual biography

 

The second line of a call number is made of a number that may have one or more digits. This line is read numerically. A call number with a smaller number in its second line is shelved before one that has a larger number for its second line. Eg:

NA 20

NA 25

NA 25.15

NA 25.16

NA 25.26

1032

 
 

Remark:

In many occasions, LC class number may contain a third line with letter and a number that may have one or more digits, or other symbols. Treat the letter alphabetically and the number is a bit tricky to be shelved like below:

G7824    .B22

G7824    .B38
