Definition

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and libraries contributing LAC use field 055 for call numbers or class numbers they assign. LAC uses the LC classification schedules with sections specially developed for Canadian history, literature, and law. You may use field 055 if you are transcribing Library and Archives Canada copy.

Field 055 may have numbers from the LC classification schedules, LC-type class numbers from LAC schedules, and incomplete class numbers. Follow incomplete class number with an asterisk ( * ) to indicate that the Cutter number varies from English to French. LAC currently does not use subfield ‡b . If you are transcribing Canadian Cataloging-in-Publication (CIP) copy, enter the LC or LC-type call number or class number in field 055.

For other types of classification schemes use the respective fields (e.g., for NLM use field 060, for UDC use field 080, and for Dewey use field 082).

1st indicator

Existence in LAC collection. Whether the item has been added to LAC's collections.
 
blank character Information not provided 
 
Work held by LAC 
 
1 Work not held by LAC 

2nd indicator

Type, completeness, source of class/call number. The source of the call number or class number and its completeness. If you are transcribing Canadian CIP, use values , 1, or 2. Use the LC classification schedule to determine the appropriate value.
 
LC-based call number assigned by LAC. From LAC copy only.
 
1 Complete LC class number assigned by LAC. From LAC copy only.
 
2 Incomplete LC class number assigned by LAC. From LAC copy only.
 
3 LC-based call number assigned by the contributing library

5 Incomplete LC class number assigned by the contributing library 
 
6 Other call number assigned by LAC. From LAC copy only.
 
7 Other class number assigned by LAC. From LAC copy only.
 
8 Other call number assigned by the contributing library

Subfields

 
‡a Classification number  

The classification number portion of the call number. Use separate 055 fields for alternate call numbers.

055 1 FC3099
055 2 FC2949*
055 1 HB31
‡b Item number   The item number portion of the call number

Printing

This section describes printing of Library and Archives Canada call numbers from field 055. See "050–099  Introduction to Call Numbers" for more information.
 

Field 055 prints on cards for libraries profiled for Library and Archives Canada call numbers. A new line begins for each blank space in the field. If the field has subfield ‡b the print program treats the subfield ‡b as a blank space for call number formatting. Subfield ‡2 does not print.

If the data on the first line of the call number exceeds the call number width specified in your profile, your profile determines whether the main entry drops to the following line or you receive an error (zc) card.
