INTRODUCTION

Classification Sources contains a list of works which are sources of classification schemes, along with the code assigned to each source work. The purpose of this list is to allow the source of the classification number or span of numbers given in MARC records to be designated by a code.

Arrangement of the List

Entries in the following list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source work or scheme. Additional information about the source work may appear in an italicized note following the citation.

Source codes are limited in use to specific fields. In the following list, source codes are grouped under the field in which the codes may be used. Source codes which may be used in more than one field are repeated under each field in which they may be used.

Code Structure

The code assigned to the work consists of a maximum of eight lowercase alphabetic characters. For many classification schemes of states of the United States, the source code consists of the U.S. Postal Service abbreviation for the state as the first two characters, followed by other letters identifying the specific scheme. For government document classifications schemes "docs" follows the first two characters. For other sources, the entire code may be based on the title of the work or scheme.

The code may be followed by the edition or date of publication of the source work. The code is separated from the edition or date by a slash (/). Omission of the year or edition will imply that the assigning institution used the most recent edition of the source work available. For example:

msdocs/1975
Mississippi state government publications, published 1975

SITUATIONS WHERE SOURCE CODES ARE USED

The Canadian and United States government document classification schemes are not assigned codes in this list, instead, specific indicator values have been defined for each to identify the source of the classification number. MARC field 086 1st indicator value 0 is used to identify the (U.S.) Superintendent of Documents Classification System; value 1 is used to identify the Government of Canada, Outline of Classification.
