G 302 American States and Canadian Provinces

 

BACKGROUND: Like the regions and countries table, the table of American states and Canadian provinces was developed in order to insure uniformity of Cutter numbers in all classes. It is applied to new entries in the shelflist when the form caption in the classification schedule reads By state, A-Z, or By province, A-Z provided that there is no conflict with existing entries. This instruction sheet provides guidelines for applying the American states and Canadian provinces tables.

 

PROCEDURES:

1. Existing Cutter numbers. If a Cutter number for a state or province has been used in the shelflist or established in the classification schedule, use that number even if it is in conflict with the number in the states and provinces table.

 

2. New Cutter numbers. If a Cutter number for a specific state or province is being applied for the first time in a particular class, and there is no conflict with adjacent Cutter numbers, use the Cutter number indicated in the states and provinces table. If a conflict exists with adjacent Cutter numbers, continue the existing Cutter arrangement, adjusting the new Cutter to maintain the proper arrangement.
