Book Processing⁄Oversize⁄Undersize
Follow the size guidelines below to determine whether your book should shelve in an "f" or "ff"  (folio or double folio) location.
Note: The size of the volume is the physical size of the piece in hand, not the size given in the 300 tag. For example, if the size given in the 300 tag is listed as 28 cm., but the physical size of the piece in hand is 30 cm. (due to the way the piece has been bound), it would be considered a folio (if appropriate for the class and⁄or location)
If you have a multi-part set of varying sizes, some normal size and some folio, keep the vols. together. Do not put normal sized vols. of the set in the regular stacks and the oversize vols. into f or ff locations.
BUT, if you have a situation of a set consisting of a very large number of normal-sized vols. and only one or a couple of oversize volumes, you can use your judgment to make an exception. In that case, you will have the set split between two locations, one regular and one oversize, and will record the holdings in two different MFHDs. You should ask Access Services to provide a shelf dummy for the exception volume.
