Collections of works:
Class in the appropriate literature and literary form.
Collections by one author:
Use the same Dewey as for single works.
Ex.: Twain, Mark, ‡d 1835-1910. Mark Twain : ‡b the complete interviews / ‡c edited by Gary Scharnhorst.
818/.409 ‡2 22 T969Zt9 (delete /.409 and use 818)
Collections by four or more authors:
Use the form division 08 for collections, i.e. 813.08. The division may sometimes be 008. If the OCLC record gives a Dewey, use it as is (but do not subdivide by period).
Ex.: Harlan, William K. Probes : an introduction to poetry.
Ex: Conversation pieces : poems that talk to other poems.
