CLASSIFICATION AND CATALOG SYSTEM

The VRC’s cataloging scheme was based on the Harvard Fine Arts Library (Fogg Art Museum) Slide Classification system, and evolved over the years to better reflect the special needs of our collection. Our call numbers are based on a 3-4 line cataloging system: the first line numbers represent the media and nationality/time period, the second line is a Cutter number, an alphanumeric device to code text for the name of the artist or site, and the third/fourth line indicates subject or architectural detail.
