Back to Summary of Decisions

March 3 , 2010

PSD policy specialist responsible for this weekly list: P. Weiss



General works on the topic of the relationship between religion and reason have classed in BL51. Rather than approving a new number for the topic, the meeting has decided to add an Including note under BL51 so that the past practice can be continued. The proposal was not approved.


This Cutter list is intended for topics that are depicted on postage stamps. The work being cataloged is about the effect of India's conversion to the decimal currency system on its postage stamps, rather than the depiction of that topic on stamps. The meeting felt that it would be better to class the work in HE6185.I5. The proposal was not approved.

Other decisions:

Decimal system on postage stamps

Phrase headings of this type are intended to refer to the depiction of a topic on postage stamps. Since this book deals with the effect of India's conversion to the decimal currency system on its postage stamps, the heading does not seem appropriate and was not approved. The headings Postage stamps--India and Decimal system--India may be used instead.

Reason--Religious aspects

The distinction between this proposed heading and the existing heading Faith and reason seems too fine and unclear to warrant creating a separate heading. The UF Reason--Religious aspects will be added to the heading Faith and reason. The proposal was not approved.
