3.grade level (Preschool, Gr. 1, Gr. 3-5. etc)

4. author's last name (up to and including eight characters)

5. first distinctive word of the title* (up to and including eight characters).

Exception 1. * Explanation of what the phrase "first distinctive word of the title" means:  Many of the Curriculum Guides were written by the same author. For many, the first few words of the titles are the same. For example, Mary Bolte wrote a number of guides to children's books. Many of her titles begin with the following words: A guide for using.  Examples of Mary Bolte's titles are:

Example 1:  A guide for using Amelia Bedelia in the classroom

Example 2: A guide for using Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see? in the classroom

Example 3: A guide for using Frog and toad are friend in the classroom

In all three examples, the author is the same and so are the first four words of the titles. In example 1, the first distinctive word of the title is "Amelia." In example 2, the first distinctive word of the title is "Brown." In example 3, the first distinctive word of the title is "Frog."

Exception 2:  Many of the Curriculum Guides do not have individual authors. Consequently, the call number for Curriculum Guides that do not have individual authors will consist of four parts:  

1. prefix (CURR)

2. subject (Art, Reading, Science, etc)

3.grade level (Preschool, Gr. 1, Gr. 3-5. etc)
