I was recently informed by LC and others that the LC classification
number in an 050 field for a literary author (on a BIBCO record)
does not have to be the number in use by LC, as long as it is valid
within the LC classsification scheme. (Of course, LC may change the
number if they use that record.)

Does this also apply to class numbers for musicians and artists,
for those libraries (like us) who have locally assigned numbers
in those areas, which differ from LC's?
