Shelfcodes Explanations

For all but a few oddball categories the shelfcode format is (Items in brackets are optional.):

[R/] size [-category]

"R/" means "on reserve, does not circulate." Additionally, the following also don't circulate: DICT, ARTIFACT, foreign books, doubles (e.g., Ace Doubles), and anything on the New Books shelf. With those exceptions, anything that doesn't have the "R/" prefix does circulate.

Size (based on the book's height):

  • S – up to 7¼ inches: (small)
  • L – 7¼ to 9½ inches: (large)
  • VL – 9½ to 12 inches: (very large)
  • XL – above 12 inches: (extremely large)

Major catagories:

  • (none) – Fiction, single-author works. Novels or collections of stories all by the same author.
  • A – Fiction, anthologies. Collections of stories by different authors. (Note: anthologies are alphabetized by name-of-editor. Also, there's no hyphen for these, thus e.g. "LA" rather than "L-A".)
  • REF – Non-fiction, reference work.
  • CX – Comics/graphic novels.
  • ART – Art books.
