PSD policy specialist responsible for this weekly list: L. Dechman



This list is a list of time periods, based on rulers. THe work being cataloged is a biography of Empress Irene, who never ruled, and should be classified in DF606, with her husband, John II Comnenus. The proposal was not approved.

Subject Headings

Advertising--Photographers; Advertising photography

The formulation Advertising--[topic] refers to the advertising of a particular product or service. The heading Advertising photography means photography used for advertising purposes. So the UF Advertising--Photography is not approriate under the heading Advertising photography. It should be left under Advertising--Photographers. The proposals were not approved.

Baqa and Fana (Sufism)

The two concepts are often treated together, but Fana is often treated separately, so the meeting feels that the headings Baqa (Sufism) and Fana (Sufism) are sufficient, and when the concepts are treated together, the headings may be post-coordinated. The proposal was not approved.

China--History--Opium War, 1840-1842

Wars that are established as subdivisions under [place]--History do not have BTS from a broader period of history of the same place. The proposal was not approved.

Civil war and economic development

The works being cataloged are better represented by assigning the existing heading Civil war--Economic aspects. The proposal was not approved.

Biliary tract; Gallbladdar; Liver

A BT is not made from the discipline for the study of an organ or organ system on headings for individual organs in the system. The proposals were not approved.

Popular music--Brazil

Headings of the type [topic]--[place] are not coded (May Subd Geog). The authorization for geographic subdivision is made only when in the main heading. The proposals

Urban ecology

The existing headings Urban ecology (Biology) and Urban ecology (Sociology) are considered sufficient for cataloging purposes. The proposal was not approved.
