If you wish to know where the Library of Congress has classed a particular work by John Dewey, you should do a call number search for LB875.d at http://catalog.loc.gov. Following the preferred shelflist order, collected and selected works should be filed first, followed by individual works in alphabetical order.  For example, his Democracy and education is at .D35; his Schools of tomorrow is Cuttered .D46.  Biography and general criticism of Dewey are in LB875.D5.

Questions like this that do not involve the technicalities of the Class Web system and its user interface should be directed to the Policy and Standards Division at policy at loc.gov.

Hi everyone, 

I'm trying to determine what cutter to use for John Dewey under LB 875 .D The schedule has .D34-D49. Works. 

How do I decide what cutter in the range to use? Once it is used, I assume that this is the cutter number that should always be used for Dewey within this class number. 

I looked for guidance in the LC Shelflisting manual and the LC Classifcation manual, but I couldn't find anything. 

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
