  • 03 – Dictionary, glossary, terms
  • 04 – Encyclopedias
  • 05 – Loose leaf publications
  • 06 – Journals
  • 07 – Others
b) For Special collection, institutional abbreviation (i.e.: LOMA, BNM) is used or S plus country code from Table 2 DDC Volume 1 (i.e.: S597 for Singapore) for countries.
c) No specific code is use for item in General collection
Second is DDC number or subject code.
Third is Cutter number or author code.
