13 The Manual entry at the start of Table 3A Works by or about individual authors says nothing about pseudonyms In particular, the discussion of literary periods for a specific author says nothing about pseudonyms Literary periods and pseudonyms

14 Use only one literary period for an author and all of the author's works, including works that may have been published earlier or later than the dates covered by that period. Determine the literary period in accordance with scholarly consensus about when an author flourished.... In the absence of scholarly comment, use the weight of bibliographic evidence to determine when an author flourished. For example, class an author who published one novel in 1999, one novel in 2000, one in 2001, and one in 2002 in the literary period beginning with Literary periods: from the Manual at T3A

15 Initial decision: An author who establishes a new literary identity with a new pseudonym in the 21st century should have the new literary period notation assigned to that new pseudonym We are reconsidering the initial decision Pseudonyms: Initial decision by the Decimal Classification Division of the Library of Congress

16 Literary identity: American writer of novels of suspense Her publication timeline begins in American fiction2000– Example: Lauren Kelly

18 Kelly, Lauren, ǂ d From Library of Congress Authority Record: 010n Kelly, Lauren, ǂ d Works by this author are entered under the name used in the item. For a listing of other names used by this author, search also under ǂ b Oates, Joyce Carol, 1938-

19 Literary identity: American writer of many kinds of fiction, including domestic fiction, love stories, bildungsromans, historical fiction, horror fiction, romans a ̀ clef, and biographical fiction Her publication timeline begins in American fiction1945–1999 Example: Joyce Carol Oates

20

21 Oates, Joyce Carol, ǂ d From Library of Congress Authority Record: 010 n Oates, Joyce Carol, ǂ d For works of this author entered under other names, search also under ǂ b Fernandes, ǂ b Smith, Rosamond, ǂ b Kelly, Lauren, 1938-

22 Literary periods and pseudonyms: Question Should we treat pseudonyms as separate literary identities and assign literary period notation according to when the pseudonym began to flourish? Or should we assign the same literary period notation to all the names under which an author publishes? See Pseudonyms and Literary Periods (July 08, 2008) in : The Dewey blogPseudonyms and Literary Periods : The Dewey blog EPC and the Dewey editorial team are seeking user comment by August 15, 2008

23 Literary period table for Canadian literature in English (1) Two different standard period tables at Subdivisions of American literature in English: For Canada For literature in English language from any part of North America, South America, Hawaii, and geographically associated islands; for comprehensive works on literature in English language from all these areas Plans to create separate MARC records for each number in a literary period table drew our attention to the anomaly of two standard period tables

24 Literary period table for Canadian literature in English (2) Period table for Canada has been changed to optionallike the optional period table for Canadian literature in French at Subdivisions of French literature Notation in the period table remains unchanged Library and Archives Canada continues to use the period table for Canada with C to indicate Canada, e.g.: C813.3 Canadian fiction of colonial period to 1867

25 Literary period table for Canadian literature in English (3) Library of Congress no longer uses the special table for Canada; it is now applying the standard table for literature in English language from any part of North America to Canadian literature in English Few authors are affected by the change: The two tables are exactly the same for 20th and 21st centuries Only a few Canadian authors are affected by discrepancies in earlier periodsprimarily those who began to flourish before 1830

26 (OPTIONAL PERIOD TABLE FOR AMERICAN LITERATURE IN ENGLISH (For Canada (3 Colonial period to 1867 Class here 19th century For 1867–1899, see 4 (4 1867–1899 (5 1900–1999 ( –1945 ( –1999 ( )
