DCM Z1:  050  Library of Congress Call Number

LC series practice:  As of June 1, 2006, LC does not create or update SARs.

PCC series practice:  Transcription of the series statement is mandatory if applicable.  Searching for series authority records, tracing the series, and the creation and maintenance of series authority records are optional.

Punctuation:

Use periods after the terms listed below.  Use periods for abbreviations in non-English languages according to the usage in those languages.

fol.

no.

pt.

subser.

Suppl.

vol.

Use of "subser.":

If a subseries (numbered or unnumbered, established subordinately or independently) is classified with the main series, the call number of the main series plus "subser." is the call number given in the 050 field on the subseries SAR; the abbreviation "subser." is part of subfield $b.

main series SAR:

050  ##  $a AS36.I92 $b A2 $5 ___

646  ##  $a c $5 ___

subseries SAR:

050  ##  $a AS36.I92 $b A2 subser. $5 ___

646  ##  $a m $5 ___

The abbreviation "subser." appears in the 050 field of the collected set bibliographic record for a numbered subseries.  The call number of the main series appears in the 050 field of a monograph analytic bibliographic record for a volume of the subseries; the volume number of the main series given in the 4XX  Series Statement field of the bibliographic record replaces "subser." in the call number in the bibliographic record.

main series collected set record:

"Subser." is also used in 050 fields of nonanalyzable serials in monographic series.

Numbered multipart items classified with main or another series:

When a numbered multipart item is in a monographic series or in a more comprehensive multipart item that is classified as a collection, a collected set bibliographic record is also prepared for the smaller multipart item as a whole.  The call number in the 050 field of that bibliographic record consists of the call number of the main/another series plus the volume number of the main/another series (not the volume number of the smaller multipart item) that constitutes the first or earliest known volume of the smaller multipart item, followed by the abbreviation "etc."  That call number is the one given in the 050 field of the SAR for the smaller multipart item.

For the volume number of the main/another series, use the numbering designation already established as shown in the 642 of the SAR or in subfield $v of 4XX/8XX fields in analytic bibliographic records.  If that information is not available (e.g., the only existing analytic record is a nonanalyzable series or the series was previously not analyzed), always use the English abbreviations "vol.," "no.," and "pt." for "volume," "number," and "part" or for any equivalents in the vernacular.

item in hand:

"vypusk 5" of the multipart item constitutes "tom 17" of the main series

data base:

pre-AACR 2 analytic record for "vypusk 1" of the multipart item shows that it constitutes "tom 6" of the main series and "t. 6" has been added as an integral part of the call number of the analytic record

add in 050:

t. 6, etc.

 

item in hand:

"1. Teil" of the multipart item constitutes "Band 9" of the main series

data base:

no analytic records

add in 050:

vol. 9, etc.

Following are records showing the interrelationship of the fields in an SAR for a series classified as a collection, an SAR for a multipart item in that series, the multipart item collected set bibliographic record, and a multipart item analytic bibliographic record.

series SAR:

050  ##  $a QE75 $b .B9 $5 ___

130  ##  $a U.S. Geological Survey bulletin

642  ##  $a 1749 $5 ___

646  ##  $a c $5 ___

multipart SAR:

050  ##  $a QE75 $b .B9 no. 1749, etc. $5 ___

130  ##  $a Mineral resources of wilderness study areas--west-central Utah

430  ##  $a U.S. Geological Survey bulletin. $p Mineral resources of wilderness study areas--west-central Utah

642  ##  $a ch. A $5 ___

646  ##  $a m $5 ___

NOTE:  If a volume number consists of only an arabic numeral (i.e., designation is lacking), "no." is given with the arabic numeral at the end of a call number so that volume number doesn't look like a date.

multipart collected set record:

050  ##  $a QE75 $b .B9 no. 1749, etc.

245  ##  $a Mineral resources of wilderness study areas--west-central Utah.

440  ##  $a U.S. Geological Survey bulletin ; $v 1749

505  ##  $a ch. A. Mineral resources of the Swasey Mountain and Howell Peak Wilderness study areas, Millard County, Utah / by David A. Lindsay ... [et al.]

analytic record:

050  ##  $a QE75 $b .B9 no. 1749-A

245  ##  $a Mineral resources of the Swasey Mountain and Howell Peak wilderness study areas, Millard County, Utah / $c by David A. Lindsey ... [et al.]

440  ##  $a Mineral resources of wilderness study areas--west-central Utah ; $v ch. A

Unnumbered multipart item classified with main or another series:

No collected set bibliographic record is prepared for an unnumbered multipart item in a monographic series or in a more comprehensive multipart item classified as a collection.

So, in the 050 field of the SAR give the call number of the main or another series without an addition of the volume designation of the main/other series.  The 050 field in each bibliographic record has the specific volume number of the main/other series.

main/other series SAR:

050  ##  $a Q11 $b .K84 $5 ___

646  ##  $a c $5 ___

unnumbered multipart item SAR:

050  ##  $a Q11 $b .K84 $5 ___

646  ##  $a m $5 ___

multipart analytic record:

050  ##  $a Q11 $b .K84 no. 47

4XX  ##  $a [main/other series title] ; $v no. 47

4XX  ##  $a [multipart item title]

Exceptions to use of call number:

If, by exception, a subseries has a classification decision different from that of the main series or a serial analytic has a classification decision different from that of the series, explain the exception in the 050 field subfield $d.

main series SAR:

050  ##  $a ___ $b ___ $d all vols. except [title of subseries] $5 ___

646  ##  $a c $d all vols. except [title of subseries] $5 ___

646  ##  $a s $d [title of subseries] $5 ___

subseries SAR:

646  ##  $a s $5 ___

series SAR:

050  ##  $a ___ $b ___ $d [title of serial] $5 ___

646  ##  $a s $d all vols. except [title of serial] $5 ___

646  ##  $a c $d [title of serial] $5 ___
