Number-building

Abstract:

The provisions for number synthesis are increasing in the DDC by the process of number-building with the instruction defined and described by add to … instructions. This chapter provides instructions on the use of the six auxiliary tables given in Volume 1 of the DDC, and explains the various ways of number-building by adding a whole or part of a number, or the divisions taken from internal tables to an identified base number. Furthermore this chapter describes, with many examples, the method for addition of facets through the use of some facet indicators in order to synthesise a number in a specified citation order.
