advantage that it enables a class to be divided and the less frequently consulted portion to be removed to another part of the building without detriment to the searcher, who is informed by a notice on a wooden block on the shelves that books in that class prior to a given date are shelved elsewhere.
Size marks.—In case of books over a certain size, economy of space and other considerations require their separate shelving, Three divisions of size have been made, the octavo (for books under 12 inches in height), quarto (between 12 and 17 inches in height), and folio (over 17 inches in height). The two latter divisions are distinguished by the following marks placed after the "work mark" :—
/ representing the quarto series.
Special marks.—The addition of an asterisk (*) or asterisks (**) to the work mark indicates that the work in question is not to be found on the open shelves, but is shelved elsewhere in the library buildings. Access to such works is obtainable on
In other respects the rules for using the subject lists remain unaltered. Specific information should be looked for under specific headings, where the monographs on a given subject are to be found, but these monographs must not be accepted as representing the entire resources of the Library on a particular subject. Where further information is required, the searcher should refer to the Key to the Classification at the end of each volume, where th& headings are arranged in their class order, and their relationship to other classes shown by their position in the classification and by references.
