Present from PSD: L. Dechman, R. Goudreau


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

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

H 1150, Diseases

$x Ayurvedic treatment (May Subd Geog)

Other decisions:

Amino acids in fermentation

Since any substance can be singled out for its function in any process, headings of this type could be formulated for every instance, which is not deisrable. The meeting feels that it would be better to assign the heading Amino acids post-coordinated with Fermentation. The proposal was not approved.

Oso Creek Watershed (Nueces County, Tex.)

The Subject Headings Manual, H 800, sec. 9 specifies that if a river has not yet been established at the time when a watershed heading is proposed, the heading for the river should also be proposed. This proposal may be resubmitted together with a proposal to establish a heading for the river.

Wohnpark Fontana (Austria)

According to information give in the 670 field of this record, the Wohnpark Fontana is a country club. The Subject Headings Manual, H 405 specifies that country clubs should be established in the Name Authority File. The proposal was not approved.
