Education Exceptions - Western Cataloguing Specifications

Note the distinction between juvenile literature and juvenile fiction.

 

Supply records for books only (not accompanying or support materials).

 

For juvenile material, add juvenile subdivision to LC heading.  Delete juvenile heading (6XX second indicator 1) and use LC equivalent with juvenile subdivision - NB. If 6XX second indicator 1 is a first time subject heading for WL and not verifiable in LCSH, retain as is.

Graphic novels

 

For juvenile graphic novels, use LC class PZ7.7.  For non-juvenile, prefer to classify by topic except if known comic book character or strip, then class by country under PN67##.

 

Note that rules for cuttering and adaptations differ (e.g., PN6728.T74G73 1999). 

 

For Education, use (where appropriate) "Comic books, strips, etc." or "Graphic novels" as |v form subdivisions in 650 fields.  Do not use "Comic books, strips, etc." or "Graphic novels" in 650 |a.

 

 

Publishers' sets

 

Prefer series classed together treatment rather than classed separately, to keep publishers' sets together on shelf.  (E.g.: Scholastic Canada sets Alphakids.)

 

Academic material

 

As with juvenile literature, avoid use of classification L for materials directly related to a subject discipline.  E.g., class mathematics in QA, art in N, etc.
