Cataloging: Special Collections Maine State Documents

Purpose: To give an overview and procedures for the processing of Maine State Documents.

Special Collections staff applies classification numbers whether materials are added or newly cataloged.

Call number example:

St. Docs. W 30/1.10:St29/2006

Label example:

NOTE: Label print dialog in Sierra will not format the label properly and will require manual adjustment.
