[Classweb-users] Class Web HJ schedule and Table H8

In this area of the schedules, Table H8 is only used after Romania (HJ2885).  Numbers before that are explicitly established.  I have created a number for Monaco at HJ2669.5.  It will appear in tomorrow's Classification Web.

The problem you encountered is precisely why HJ2360-2885 is established in the schedule instead of applying Table H8 to those countries.

Subject: [Classweb-users] Class Web HJ schedule and Table H8

Dear Class Web users:

I sent an earlier message about this, but since it included copied-and-pasted sections of the classification schedules, it didn't seem to go through.  I'll re-send this now with just a verbal description.

We are trying to classify a title about Taxation in Monaco using the HJ schedule. (OCLC #869435586). We realize we could classify this in the KKL354  but wanted to keep this in HJ with other countries on the same topic in our collection.

There is no number provided for Monaco in the schedule between HJ2361 and HJ2885. For other regions or countries, we are directed to Table H8. When clicking on the "Other regions or countries" link there is no number for Monaco between HJ2901-HJ3192.7. When going directly to Table H8 the number  340.5 is provided for Monaco. Adding 340.5 to HJ2350, results in HJ2690.5 which puts Monaco in a sub arrangement under Germany. For some European countries such as Germany there is a number in the schedule and a number in the table which is not the same (Germany HJ2671 (general works)) in the schedule but HJ2691 general works (341 + 2350) from table H8.

Is there an error in the link to other regions or countries or in Table H8 or are we missing something else?

Thanks for your help,
