Serial Hospital Reports

  • At NLM, serial hospital reports classed in WX 2 are arranged by Table G number and double cuttered for the city and hospital name
  • Decimal subdivisions .1 and .2 are not used for the city
  • The cutter for the country is recorded in 060 $a and the cutters for the city and institution go in 060 $b without a space between the city and institution cutters. The LC cuttering system is used for the city and institution cutters (Cf. Module 9—Continuing Resources)
  • Example:
    • The annual report of St. Luke's Hospital (Jacksonville, Fla.)
    • Call number breakdown
      • WX 2 Classification number for hospital reports
      • AF4   Table G number for Florida
      • J2      LC cutter for Jacksonville
      • S3     LC cutter for St. Luke’s Hospital
      • a       Workmark for first title word "annual"

         

    • 060 00 $a WX 2 AF4 $b J2S3a
  • Serial reports of U.S. named military hospitals are cuttered the same way as civilian hospitals except that the military cutter (A1-A5) is used instead of the geographical notation for the country
  • Example:
    • The annual report of Walter Reed Army Hospital
    • Call number breakdown
      • WX 2 Classification number for hospital reports
      • A2     Table G number for United States Dept. of the Army
      • D6     LC cutter for District of Columbia
      • W2    LC cutter for Walter Reed
      • a       Workmark for first title word "annual"

         

    • 060 10 $a WX 2 A2 $b D6W2a
  • Numbered U.S. military hospitals do not have fixed locations and therefore a geographical notation is not applied to them. The hospital number is used as the cutter in the 060 $b without an additional cutter or workmark
  • Example:
    • The year book of the U.S. Army General Hospital No. 141
    • Call number breakdown
      • WX 2 Classification number for hospital reports
      • A2     Table G number for United States Dept. of the Army
      • 141    Hospital number

         

    • 060 10 $a WX 2 A2 $b 141
