The rule (last time I asked a professional librarian) is that names beginning with Mc or Mac come before all the other M’s but after all the Ls.

Hmmm – interesting…. I guess if your librarian didn’t have a surname beginning MAB as I do. In UK phonebooks at least, Mc and Mac are treated as identical, but are placed (I think correctly) between Mab… and Mad…

Cheers.
