Good afternoon folks: I ran into a thorny issue this morning. I have a literary author, Ricardo B. Rodriguez, whom I'd like to propose a literary number for, but alas, per the CIP data, the "B." is actually the initial of his first last name (he's Argentine). It's been known to happen., I have no idea how to cutter a situation like this. I'm able to get PQ7798.412. .... but then it starts to break down. The LC Shelflisting manual wasn't much help either. Thanks in advance Bob -- Bob Talbott Principal cataloger/Hebraica cataloger UC Berkeley 250 Moffitt Berkeley, CA 94720 We're happy as fish, as gorgeous as geese, and wonderfully clean in the morning.
