Building Cutter Numbers Resource Sheet

  1. 1. Building Cutter Numbers Resource Sheet Building Cutter Numbers: An Overview Webinar Resource Sheet Compiled by Cheryl Boettcher Tarsala September 12, 2014 Slide 7 The classic catalog of the St. Louis County (Mo.) Library. A search for a any call number, such as 641.5, will show an array of materials subarranged by Cutter-Sanborn three-figure tables with work marks. http://webpac.slcl.org/screens/mainmenuclassic.html Slide 9 New Copies of Printed Cutter & Cutter Sanborn Tables (cardboard) There is no way to order them online. However, the ALA Library Fact Sheet 18 (Nov. 2012) gives the following information: "Reprint editions of the Cutter Author Tables publications - the C.A. Cutter's Two-Figure Author Table, the C.A. Cutter's Three-Figure Author Table, and the Cutter-Sanborn Three-Figure Author Table - can still be acquired through Hargrave House by calling (303) 904-3600 or sending a fax to (303) 904-3601." You can also search for used copies of them from online booksellers. (Cutter tables never wear out.)

  2. 2. Building Cutter Numbers Resource Sheet http://worldcat.org/arcviewer/1/OCC/2003/06/03/0000003355/viewer/file1.html This report presents the analyses done by OCLC Research in developing the Four-figure Cutter Tables. Cutter-Sanborn Three-figure Tables on the Internet (non-U.S. websites) 1. Hosted by Dongseo University in Busan, South Korea http://203.241.185.12/asd/board/Author/upfile/abcd.htm Just the cutters listed in three columns per page. 2. Hosted by UnForBi at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba in Argentina http://www.unforbi.com.ar/herramientas/cutter/ Includes both the cutters listed in three columns and a search box that returns a cutter result, but only if you input an exact match for a particular list entry. Spanish and English interfaces. 3. Hosted by Nicole Davignon in Québec http://www.davignon.qc.ca/cutter1.html French/English interface with search box that doesn't seem to work. Cutters listed in three columns per page. 4. Hosted by the Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt http://www.ub.ku-eichstaett.de/cgi-bin/cutterjo.pl German interface. Cutters are accessed by input of a name into a search box. The search results display the cutter in red along with surrounding numbers from the table so you can see the entry in context. The easiest to use of all web versions, but it does not reveal the full list of the numbers for each letter. Note: Joel Hahn of Niles (Ill.) Public Library has written a Windows-based cutter program that generates cutters. However, you must supply data files. http://www.hahnlibrary.net/libraries/programs/index.html Slide 15 The instruction pamphlet that was distributed with the original Cutter- Sanborn tables is out of copyright and has been digitized several times. "Explanation of the Cutter-Sanborn Author Marks (Three-figure Tables)," 2 of 4 9/11/14, 2:16 AM
