0 references
<br/>2. Year: 2 digits if assigned in the years 1898-2000; 4 digits if assigned in the year 2001 or after (English)
0 references
<br/>3. Serial: 1 to 6 digits; best practice is now to always type this number with 6 digits, padding the number with zeroes on the front if needed. (English)
0 references
<br/><br/>For records in Library of Congress Authorities ([[Q13219454]]), including titles of famous works, and names of people, use LCAuth identifier ([[Property:P244]]).<br/> (English)

<br/>1. Alphabetic prefix: A possible prefix of 1 to 3 lower-case letters. (Bibliographic records after 2000 never have a prefix, but pre-2001 bibliographic records often do, and other kinds of LCCNs always do. Bibliographic records do <em>not</em> have prefixes n, nb, nr, ns, sh, sj, sn: use [[Property:P244]] for those.) (English)

<br/>On Wikidata, an optional space or hyphen may appear before the year. An optional hyphen may appear before the serial number; if the serial number is typed as less than 6 digits, the hyphen is required. The preferred and best formatting now is to remove all hyphens and spaces and insure that the serial is always 6 digits, as shown in the right column of http://lccn.loc.gov/#n9. (English)
