Hicks/Schiller Call Numbers
Comparative, non-Anglo-American foreign, and miscellaneous materials are classified
using the Hicks and Schiller systems. The letters at the beginning of the call numbers are
derived from the form of material or country or subject they represent.
Most items dealing with the law of another country are assigned call numbers which
begin with an abbreviation of the name of that country, for example, "It" for
Italy, "Jpn" for Japan, "Sp.Col" for Colombia. Please note, however,
that Anglo-American materials are generally classified using the "LC" system.
Thus Great Britain is KD; Canada, KE; Australia, KU; New Zealand, KUQ.
Foreign law (other than Anglo-American) and comparative titles are in the

law), GJ (jurisprudence), P (Anglo-American periodicals), R (reports); consult Pegasus for
