For individual Romance Literatures, class numbers are to consist of the abbreviated or modified Dewey numbers for the period of the work in hand, followed by an author Cutter book number all on one line.
This first component of the call number is followed by a locally devised UIUC book number.
For individual works of an author which are arranged under "O" alphabetically by the title, follow the "O" with a lower-case letter from the first significant word of the title. Under "O" keep editions of the same work separate by date.
Translations of individual works are arranged under "0" followed with a lower-case letter from the original title, followed by a colon to indicate a translation, followed by a capital letter for the language of the translation. See individual Romance literature schedules for examples.
For a biography of an individual literary critic (a writer whose contribution is considered
primarily criticism), or a biography of more than one literary critic (a collected work), use
-0092 (individual) or
-00922 (collected) respectively:
|Biography of an individual literary critic of Romance literature authors||840.092|
|Biography of more than one literary critic of Romance literature authors||840.0922|
