We've made an interim decision to cutter by the phrase: <Internet>.  In
addition, there are a bunch of other clues on our local holdings that the
item is available on the Internet and not on our shelves. Eventually,
we'll have the ability to surpress call number display for these items so
that the classification will be indexed but will not display.
