Recognizing when Table G is Allowed

  • Supply a "Table G" geographic cutter for all classification numbers that are annotated "Table G" in the schedules and the geographic aspect is emphasized in the work being cataloged
  • For every number in the schedule annotated "Table G," there is a corresponding number annotated "Not Table G" that is used for works on the same topic that have no geographic emphasis

  • Do not use a Table G geographic cutter with any classification number that is not annotated "Table G" even if a geographic subject is assigned to the work being cataloged

  • Do not apply NLM Table G cutters if you have to assign an LC classification number to the work being cataloged
