Masha Rudman Children's Collection Codes

These codes are to be used in conjunction with the cataloging instructions for the Masha Rudman Childrens Collection Cataloging and Processing.

How to use the chart: The Codes in UPPER CASE in the first column represent a broad category, whereas the Codes in lower case represent a sub-category. (Note that not all broad categories have a sub-category.) When creating the 099 field, retain the category code in CAPS and the subcategory in lower case plus author in upper/lower case as appropriate.
