Geographic Cutter Numbers

Worth a bookmark.
The 2001 edition of Class G includes Tables G1-G11. Although references to Tables G1548-G9804 appear throughout the schedule, it was not practical to include those tables of geographic Cutter numbers in the printed schedule because the Cutters now number over 100,000. Online access to the tables is available by subscription to Classification Web. In addition, the Library of Congress is now making them available at no charge in the form of a PDF file that will be updated on a regular basis. The current version of the file was updated in February 2004.

Users are cautioned that this is a large file (8730 KB; 3000 pages) and may take several minutes or more to download, depending on Internet connection speed.

Seen in the WAML Information Bulletin.
