Vietnam War, 1961-1975

The heading "Vietnamese Conflict, 1961-1975" is being revised to Vietnam War, 1961-1975 on this list. Changes to references on headings for individual battles and operations in the war are not included on the list. Instead, the reference changes will be made off list and the updated subject authority records will be distributed along with the revised records for the war and subdivisions established under the name of the war.

Young adult fiction

The meeting did not approve introducing a new free-floating subdivision to separate fictional works for young adults, i.e., teenagers, from fiction for children in general, for which the subdivision --Juvenile fiction is used. If a library wishes to identify these materials, the form heading Young adult fiction could be assigned in a 655 field.
