EXCEPTION EXPLANATIONS

1*: while Dewey Decimal would class pastors' journals, sermons, etc. different numbers,

 

combining them in PVCW's collection amplifies their presence

 

 

 

2*: while Dewey Decimal would class foreign language materials by their subject

 

 

collecting them together in PVCW's collection amplifies their focus.

 

 

 

3*: 917.75291 has been created here for Wausau city directories to divide up a very large category.

4*: 943.51 is not a standard DDC number, but has been employed by other libraries for ethnic German heritage;

grouping German ethnic materials in PVCW's collection amplifies their presence.
