Definition

Call numbers based on Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC). Field 092 is not part of the standard MARC 21 Bibliographic format. If you are transcribing Library of Congress (LC) copy or Canadian Cataloging-in-Publication, use field 082 for Dewey numbers assigned by LC or Library and Archives Canada. Field 092 is not retained in the master record if field 082 contains a call number. Field 092 is retained in archive records, institution records, OCLC-MARC records, and exported records.

If you assign a Dewey Decimal Classification number according to the DDC schedules or to LC practice, prefer field 082 with 2nd indicator 4 except when printed cards are needed. If the classification portion of your number does not conform to the DDC schedules, use field 099.
