A geographic subdivision brings out the origin or the locality of the main subject. Not all main headings are subdivided geographically. Geographic subdivisions are provided under subjects which show significant variations when treated in, or with regard to, different locations. Headings that lend themselves to geographic treatment are subdivided by place.
