    Analytics LC Classification code shows Unknown even though a call number is present in Alma

    • Product: Alma


    In Analytics, the LC Classification code is Unknown, even though a call number is cataloged in Alma.




    If the call number is not recognized by the Library of Congress, it is displayed as Unknown. The Analytics LC Classification follows the Library of Congress Classification Outline, found here: 

    Call numbers can also display as Unknown if the formatting is incorrect. For example, if the call number is cataloged with a space between the classification code and number (e.g., PR 830 instead of PR830), the classification will not be recognized and will display as Unknown.
