Back to Summary of Decisions

December 10, 2008

Present from PSD: L. Dechman, R. Goudreau



The only trials that are listed in the schedule are those that have a name that is established as a subject heading. Individual personal names are Cuttered without being established in the schedule. The proposal was not necessary.

Subject Headings

Subdivisions to be added to lists of free-floating subdivisions:

H 1147, Animals

$x Effect of poaching on (May Subd Geog)

H 1180, Plants & crops

$x Artificial growing media (May Subd Geog)
$x Effect of poaching on (May Subd Geog)
$x Growing media (May Subd Geog)

Other decisions:


The proposal was to add UF Aeolipiles and UF Fire-blowers to this heading. Aeolipiles are steam-blowers, and as such the reference is not appropriate for this heading. Fire-blowers is ambiguous (the term may mean circus performers who "blow fire" or blow-torches). The term Aeolipiles may be established separately, if desired. The proposal to add the UF Fire-blowers may be re-submitted with an appropriate qualifier, if desired. The proposal was not approved.


The heading Imperialism is used for general works on Empires. A UF Empires will be added to the record for Imperialism. The proposal was not approved.

European Union--Language policy

The appropriate heading in LCSH for this concept is Language policy--European Union countries. The proposal was not approved.

Mexican-American Border Region

The meeting determinged that the heading already has sufficient references beginning with the term "Border Region", and there is a reference from U.S. to United States, so references from U.S. are not necessary. The proposal to add these UFs to this heading was not approved.

Music for the deaf

The work begin cataloged does not contain music; therefore this heading is not appropriate for the work. The other subject headings assigned to the work seem sufficient to describe its content. The heading was not approved.
