    tab_topics.eng for LC call numbers

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    The tab_topics.eng file distributed by ExLibris is for Dewey Decimal. We need a file that is set up for Library of Congress.

    Two different versions of a tab_topics.eng table for LC call numbers are attached to this KB entry. One version is called and only incorporates the very top level of the LC call number breakdown. The other one is called and contains pretty much the full breakdown, according to the Library of Congress website ( Some of the categories have been adapted somewhat, as there is a limit of 40 characters for each topic. You can feel free to adapt it to suit your own needs.
