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
