Back to Summary of Decisions

June 28, 2006

Present from CPSO: M. Wewerka, R. Goudreau


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Hamites; Cushites; and related headings

Current encyclopedias do not support the proposals to limit the use of the headings Hamites and Cushites to ancient peoples. The proposed revisions were not approved.

Homophobia in high schoools; Homophobia in higher education; Homophobia in schools

The standard practice for broader-term references for headings constructed with prepositional phrases is to provide a reference from the heading that corresponds to the term following the preposition. The practice is explained in Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings, instruction sheet H 370.sec. 1.e.(3)(a.). Since the existing authority records conform to the approved practice, the proposlas to change the references were not approved.
