Back to Summary of Decisions

April 12, 2006

Present from CPSO: P. Weiss, B. Bellinger, R. Goudreau


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

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

H 1149, Chemicals

$x Overdose(May Subd Geog)

H 1180, Plants & crops

$x Threshing(May Subd Geog)

$x Threshing $x Machinery(May Subd Geog)

Other decisions:

Adventure stories

The term Thrillers (Fiction) is currently a reference to the heading Suspense fiction. An additional reference to the heading Adventure stories does not seem appropriate. The proposal was therefore not approved. A reference from the term Swashbucklers to Adventure stories also seems inappropriate, in that Adventure stories is a broader heading. If swashbucklers constitute a recognized genre of fiction, a specific heading may be established; such as Swashbuckler fiction. This would be parallel to the existing heading Swashbuckler films.

Folk songs, Dusun

The existing heading Songs, Dusun appears to be more appropriate for the tiem being catalogued than this proposed new heading. The proposal was therefore withdrawn from the list.


The proposal to add the UFs Pneumatic tires and Solid tires to this heading were not approved. Separate headings for these specific types of tires should be established if needed.
