FYI, several years ago I presented an ALCTS webinar on using the LC H Schedule.  It’s a pretty crazy and mixed-up schedule!  Recording (YouTube and .wmv) and .ppt slides are here:

A query about HV6433.I722 not appearing in Class Web:

You have to build this number.

The schedule has:
HV6433.A-Z    (Terrorism -- By region or country--Other regions or countries, A-Z)
Other regions or countries, A-Z
Under each region or country (except Great Britain):
.x         General works
.x2A-.x2Z  Specific groups, A-Z

So you start with:


Add the country number from G 300:

I72 (Iraq)

add 2 to this for "Specific groups"

Then Cutter from "I" for IS (Organization)

Crystal clear? No! But logical, I think.

I hope this helps.
