Northside ISD Library Services follows the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules, second edition revised, for processing materials. The sections below are the local specifications used by Library Services.
When a call number exceeds the decimal point, Library Services will extend to the first prime after the decimal. Librarians who want longer or shorter call numbers should lengthen or shorten by primes.

Foreign language materials will have Dewey classification numbers assigned by subject. For example, 398.2 will be used for Fairy Tales, not 468. Snowy day (El dia de nieve) by Ezra Jack Keats would be E KEA, not 468 KEA. The following list of language prefixes will be used by all campuses.
When Library Services processes materials, the following procedures are followed:
Paperback book records may be attached to hardback book records if everything else is the same (publishing family, number of pages, and copyright date).
Big Books and Board Books have their own records. Big book and Board book will be added as a local heading.
The only item type/location entries Library Services creates are:
National Awards go in the 586 field. Local subject heading (690) will be added for Texas Awards, such as Bluebonnet, Lone Star, Tayshas.
