Note that the Library of Congress classification system (LCC) is not a subject-based classification system. It is instead a geospacial locator, indicating which warehouse shelf in Washington D.C. the publication is being stored on. For various reasons, some libraries have chosen to arrange their shelves in a functionally identical manner as those in the Library of Congress, and then file their publications using the same locator numbers.
