- Do NOT add Q or F to call numbers for juvenile items in the Education & Behavioral Sciences Library.
- The Special Collections Library and Maps Library use the Branch Library sizing (see below)
- Note Procedural Change: As of 1/3/2012, cat as sep, class together call numbers WILL have Q or F added as appropriate
Oversize/Folio Item Info: All Oversize/Folio items in Pattee/Paterno, with the exception of Pattee M, N, and TR, should be assigned specific oversize/folio Home Locations. See the Home Location/Marking Description List page for a complete list. The Library should be UP-PAT. The Item type should be BOOK. Material does circulate.
Items requiring binding must be considered Oversized if they measure 1 cm. less than the standard Oversize or Folio measurements as the binding will add to their size (i.e., 32-42cm H, 36-40cm. W for Quarto and 42cm. and up H, 40 cm. and up W for Folio).
Sets with volumes of differing sizes that are cataloged on the same set record should be shelved together. Even if only one volume is considered Oversize or Folio, all volumes in that set should be marked with a Q or F as appropriate and put in the proper Oversize/Folio home location, with the exceptions noted above for Pattee M, N, and TR. All volumes should be shelved with the largest volume. For example, if a three volume set were to consist of one regular sized book, one oversized book, and one folio book, all of them should have an "F" added to the call number and be placed in the appropriate folio home location.
Special Collections Library, Maps Library and University Park Branch Libraries except for Architecture
An item is oversized when it measures 31 cm. or more in height or width. When measuring an item, always round up (e.g., 30.1 cm. rounds up to 31 cm.). See below for exceptions.
Q (Quarto): 31-41 cm.
F (Folio): 42 cm. and over
Items requiring binding should have Q or F added to the call numbers if they are 30-41 cm. (Q) or 41 cm. and over (F).
- Do NOT add Q or F to Cat as sep, class together call numbers.
Pattee Map Locations Variation
For all Pattee Map Collection locations, assign F to any item 36 cm. and over in width. Rules for height are the same for all locations.
Oversized measurements are 29-41 cm. due to compact shelving size, or 28-41 cm. for paperback items requiring binding.
DO NOT USE the oversize symbols for CCL locations with the exception of Fayette N... class call numbers.
