[Classweb-users] Cuters in ClassWeb and LC sl. conflict

The two records that are in the LC shelflist are old records that were shelflisted prior to the time that Table P-PZ31 was used with Byron.  The Cutters that appear in Class Web are the correct current Cutters and would be used for classifying any new material.

  Some subject cutters presented in ClassificationWeb under PR4392 [English 
literature--19th century, 1770/1800-1890/1900--Individual authors--Byron, 
George Gordon--Criticism and interpretation--Treatment and knowledge of 
special subjects, A-Z--] conflict with LCs shelflist and I am wondering 
which are correct. Examples:

CW-- PR4392.L48 = Liberty 
SL-- PR4392.L5  = title "Byron and liberty"

CW-- PR4392.L5  = Literature
SL-- PR4392.L56 = title "German literary influence on Byron"

Thank you!
