Books, which are too large to sit on the regular shelves,
are considered oversize books. Oversize books sit on shelves, which are
attached to the exterior wall of Room 300. This area follows the shelves,
which hold the Library of Congress classification Zs. The bibliographic records
for oversize books do not look any different than the bibliographic records for
regularly sized books. However, the holdings statement for oversized books
carries the location "big" (regular books) or "sbig" (special collection
materials). There is also a delimiter k reading "OVERSIZED" on the holdings statement.
Many thanks to the Access Department for the basic
information used within this policy.
