Class numbers with the caption Addresses, essays, lectures, or with a slight variation of that caption, are often provided among the form captions that appear at the head of major topics in the LC classification schedules. Works that consist of collected papers, miscellaneous articles, anthologies of readings, etc., are classed in these numbers. In 1986, the subdivision -Addresses, essays, lectures was discontinued in subject heading practice. That change, however, did not affect classification practice.


Where specific numbers exist in the classification schedule with the caption Addresses, essays, lectures, continue to class according to these provisions.
