How to read Government Documents call numbers

As we work on the Government Document deaccession project, we need further guidance on how to read the sudoc numbers (call numbers). Sudoc numbers are assigned by the Superintendent of Documents at the Government Printing office.

Northwestern University has a LibGuide that explains how to read this type of classification. At the end of the article is another link to Michigan State University’s LibGuide on how to read it.

A reminder as you work through this project. These documents have been moved at least three times in the past two decades. They are not in order any more. We have worked to pull what we could where we can find the documents.
