WebDewey record

Each WebDewey record represents an entry in the DDC schedules or tables or a built number synthesized according to instructions in the schedules and/or tables. Each record contains a DDC number, a caption (heading) describing the class (subject) that the number represents, a representation of the class number's position in the DDC hierarchy, and term(s) from the DDC Relative Index. Records often include one or more notes explaining correct application of the class number and Library of Congress subject headings associated with the number. If a DDC number can be segmented (i.e., truncated at a logical break), the segmented form of the number is shown at the top of the record, immediately below the class number or table number.
