Olympics Collection

Scope |  Size |  Marking |  Classification |  Subjects

The Olympics Collection consists of books about the modern Olympic games.


There are no size boundaries since this collection is going to LSF.

Marking and call tags/labels

The following guidelines are used when marking volumes for the Olympics Collection.

  1. Mark on Yale bookplate when there is one, generally in the upper left corner.
  2. Mark on verso of last page, lower right hand corner, when 1 or 2 don't apply. The lower left hand corner is the alternate location when the lower right hand corner is unusable.
  3. If the last page is unmarkable (e.g. too dark or shiny or filled with text or illustrations), mark the verso of the first usable page from the end

Do not print call tags since the collection is going to LSF. Route for custom box or Gaylord as necessary.

NOTE: Do not mark call number on original wrappers.
