Detailed Call Numbers PS8001+

"This span of alternative class numbers for Canadian literature was  developed by Mr. T.R. McCloy under contract to the National  Library of Canada. Its purpose is to provide a more specific  treatment of the topic than that provided by the regular class  numbers, PR9180-9199.4, PQ3900-3919.3, and PM30-2711, of  the Library of Congress Classification System. In the Canadian  context a comprehensive classification scheme for Canadian  literature regardless of language is considered preferable to the  LC System which separates Canadian literature by language.
 It is not possible for the Library of Congress to adopt these class  numbers and incorporate them into its own system because  they differ in principle from LC practice in their assembling of  Canadian literature together regardless of language. The  Library of Congress, however, recognizes a need for the  PS8000 area and endorses its use as an official alternative  classification scheme. In order to eliminate the danger of a  conflict in numbers, the PS8000 area will not be developed by LC in the future for other purposes.
 Libraries desiring to use the alternative numbers may obtain copies  of the schedule "Class PS8000: a classification for Canadian  literature" from the National Library of Canada, Standards and  Support, Acquisitions and Bibliographic Services, 395  Wellington Street, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A ON4."
