cynthia, I can't help you but I can encourage you -- honestly, the call
numbers alone (especially in LCC where the notation is not a strict
hierarchy) are close to useless without the meanings. One might even
make the meanings more visible than the call numbers themselves (bolder,
placed first)... Go for it!
Next: a smart phone app that reads books on a shelf and reports what the
call numbers mean. I'd call it "Where the F am I, anyway?"
