Back to Summary of Decisions

September 20, 2006

Present from CPSO: M. Wewerka, R. Goudreau, D. Thompson


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

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

H 1147, Animals

$x Larvae $x Microbiology (May Subd Geog)
$x Radio tracking (May Subd Geog)

Other decisions:

Fishes--Effect of insecticides on--Monitoring

It seems more desirable to express this concept using the two existing headings Fishes--Monitoring and Fishes--Effect of insecticides on. The proposal was not approved.

Radio broadcasting, South African

Headings for radio broadcasting with national qualifiers are used for broadcasting outside the boundaries of the country but under the auspices of a particular country or directed toward an expatriate population. Broadcasting within a country is expressed by using geographic subdivision. Since the work being cataloged discusses radio broadcasting within South Africa, the appropriate heading would be Radio broadcasting--South Africa. The proposal was not approved.
