Tape Lecture Number

1. When a tape is referenced (usually at the end of a definition) it is accompanied by a series of numbers (and sometimes letters). In our example, 5701C24A 16ACC-16, the first two numbers are the year (1957), followed by the month (january). The C stands for Copy. Sometimes you will see MC, which stands for Master Copy. The last set of numbers is the day (24th). In this case, it ends with a letter A. That’s because more than one lecture was given on this date. A is the first, B would be the second, and so on.

Often a Tape Lecture Number is followed by the name of the course or lecture series it came from. In our example, that section is 16ACC-16. ACC stands for Advanced Clinical Course. Because Hubbard did many ACCs, 16ACC means it’s the 16th one. And this lecture is the 16th lecture of this course.
