There has been some discussion on the list as to the proper procedures for
coding PCC records for law materials. The Standing Committee on Standards
has prepared the following guidelines which will be added to the
classification FAQ already posted on the PCC website. Please feel free to
contact me anyone have questions.
Chair, Standing Committee on Standards
If a PCC library using a PCC standard that calls for a classification
number catalogs a work on a topic that is not yet represented in the
classification system it uses, e.g., religious law in the case of Library
of Congress Classification, the PCC library may nevertheless designate the
record a PCC record even though it necessarily lacks the requied
classification number. Optionally, the libary may input the local number
it uses in a local call number field.
