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.« Back to All Definitions
