Present from CPSO: M. Wewerka, E. Rinn, D. Thompson


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Complexo Estuarino-Lagunar Mundaú/Manguaba (Brazil)

Web searches suggest that there may be an English-language name available for this geographic feature. Additional research should be done to determine whether there is a generally-accepted English name. The proposal may be resubmitted.

Damages, Earthquake; Earthquake damages

Instead of creating reference records for these terms, it would be possible to establish a separate heading for the concept of earthquake damage. A proposal may be resubmitted for a heading with a general see-also reference for the subdivision --Earthquake effects.

Erotic video actors and actresses; Gay erotic video actors

It is not desirable to create headings for actors and actresses related to specific film, video, or television genres such as westerns, comedies, or, in this case, erotica. Actors and actresses may begin their careers in one genre and then later expand to other genres. A heading for the individual genre may be assigned to the bibliographic record if appropriate. The proposals were not approved.

Rhodamine B as a bait marker

Headings for individual chemicals as bait markers should not be separately established as pre-coordinated headings. A combination of headings may be assigned to a work that deals with a specific chemical as a bait marker. If desired, a heading may be proposed for a class of chemicals with this function, such as dyes as bait markers. The proposal was not approved.
