The DCM at “053 LC Classification Number” has the following “NACO Practice”


NACO practice:  NACO participants may use this field only in the following situation:  to record LC classification numbers associated with personal name headings for authors who have written works of the imagination, other than works for children.  They may input classification numbers found on completed bibliographic records created and input by LC; they may request verification of other classification numbers.


There are no references or instructions on 053 LC Classification numbers for works for children. How do we submit literary author numbers for PZ?
