LCC Practicum 2
Take a look at the following call numbers and decide if they are in the right order. What are the differences between each call number?
PN 197.52 
PN 197.6 
PN 197.649 
PN 197.68 
They are in the correct order. The only difference is in the subject number lines. Now look at the next example. Are the call numbers in the right order? What is the difference between each of the call numbers?
Z 1003.3 
ZA 1003.3 
ZA 1003.3 
These are also in the correct order. The difference between the first call number and the other two is that the first one contains Z while the other two both contain ZA. The difference between the second and the third call numbers is the copy number. It is important to pay careful attention to the small details. It can be very easy to pass over an incorrectly shelved book when you do not carefully inspect the entire call number.
The following example is ordered incorrectly. How should they be ordered?
DA 247.3 .A637 F22 2006 
DB 766 .H266 B76

DB 766 .H2556 B76 2003 
DB 766 .H2556 B132 2009 
DG 247.1 .H502 C821 2000

DC 325.5 .H567 C81 2000 
The correct order is as follows:
DA 247.3 .A637 F22 2006 
DB 766 .H2556 B132 2009 
DB 766 .H2556 B76 2003 
DB 766 .H266 B76 
DC 325.5 .H567 C81 2000

DG 247.1 .H502 C821 2000
