YALE COLLECTION OF WESTERN AMERICANA
Zc17-19 -- Railroads
(Approved for use 9/20/2000)
Scope | Classification | Table of Railroads
The call numbers for railroad materials are created like those in the rest of the Western Americana collection. The primary difference is the use of a cutter for the name of the railroad or a geographic area before the last line of the call number. The one exception are works classed in Zc17.
Zc17 -- General works
|Zc17||General work about railroads|
|845wh||Year of publication of the first edition followed by first two letters of main entry|

|Zc18||Work about railroads in a specific locality|

|874La||Year of publication of the first edition followed by first two letters of main entry|
Zcl9 -- Individual lines, A-Z
|a||Charters, acts of incorporation, and works related specifically to them|
|b-g||Serials. There is no third line in the call number|
|h||Miscellaneous pamphlets that don't fit elsewhere|
|i||Surveys of route and other engineering material (See scope note at top)|
|j||Timetables. Each railroad should have one collection level record that contains all the timetables relating to that railroad. The piece is marked with a sequential number on the last line. Always include a 505 formatted contents note, using a title from the item in hand.. If appropriate, a cataloger may also create an individual record (see below).|
|k||General works, history, finance, investigations, the railroad's land grants, etc.|
|m||Guides. Guides are limited to the railroad itself; descriptions of the country the railroad passes through are classed with the geographic area|

Occasionally timetables were cataloged individually, and classed with the third line having the date and the first two letters of the main entry. Effective 16 March 2011: as catalogers encounter these railroad timetables, they should be added to the collection level record, if one exists, and reclassed using sequential numbering on the third line. Individual catalog records should be kept, but make the following changes to the MFHD: update the call number to the sequential numbering sequence, give the former call number in a reclassed note, and add an 856 link to the collection level record. There will be one item record (barcode) for each box. As boxes are added the enumeration field should be used to show the sequential numbering of the previous box.
