Definition

Government Document Classification numbers. The classification number assigned to a government document by a government agency at any level (e.g., provincial, state, national, international). Use field 086 if a number can be characterized as both a stock number and a classification number.

Identify United States Superintendent of Documents (SuDOC) numbers by coding the 1st indicator value . If the nature of the number is unknown, use field 037.

If the Government Printing Office (GPO) distributes multipart monographs with volumes or parts in the same format, but under different numbers, enter the item numbers in volume or part number order. Indicate the volume or part in parentheses following the item number. If the volumes or parts also have different SuDOC numbers, arrange the 086 fields in the same order as the 074 fields to which they apply.

074     0621 (V.1)
074     0620 (V.2)
086   I 19.2:W 68/2
086   I 19.3:1620

If GPO distributes a serial with different volumes or parts in the same format, but having different item numbers over a period of time, enter the item numbers so that the earliest item number is in the first field 074 and the most recent item number in the last field 074. If the volumes or parts also have different SuDOC numbers, arrange the 086 fields in the same order as the 074 fields to which they apply.

Printing

Field 086 subfield ‡a prints as a call number for institutions profiled for Government Document numbers. The entire call number prints on one line. Subfields ‡2 and ‡z do not print.
 
Displayed in record Prints as
HEU/G74.3C49 ‡2 ordocs HEU/G74.3C49

Use the following guidelines for printing:

  • If you want to format the Government Document classification number on several lines for printing, enter the number in field 098 (for those state government classification schemes which have an assigned indicator) or in field 099.
  • If you are creating a new record, use field 086 for the Government Document classification number, even if you use field 098 or field 099 for printing.
  • Field 086 does not print as a note. If you want to enter a Government Document classification number as a note, use field 500. Precede the note with an identifying phrase.
  • If you are creating a new record, use field 086 for the Government Document classification number, even if you use field 590 for a note.
  • Consider the following characteristics of field 086 and field 098 when deciding which fields to use for state government classification numbers:
    • Field 086 is retained in the master record; field 098 is not.
    • Field 086 is indexed; field 098 is not.
    • Field 086 prints only if the holding library is profiled for it. Field 098 prints for any holding library.
    • Field 086 prints on one line. Field 098 prints on multiple lines, according to placement of subfield codes.
