Back to Summary of Decisions

November 29, 2006

Present from CPSO: P. Weiss, K. Griffiths, D. Thompson


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

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

H 1180, Plants & crops

$x Roots $x Diseases and pests (May Subd Geog)

Other decisions:

--Essence, genius, nature

This is an older subdivision that is vague, ill-defined, and not well supported by literary warrant. The proposal to expand its usage beyond individual religions was not approved. Works on the essence or nature of a particular political or intellectual philosophy should be assigned the heading for the philosophy without further subdivision.

Legislative buildings

There are many individual parliamentary, capital, and legislative office buildings established in LCSH. If this newly proposed heading were to be approved, the BTs for these individual buildings would need to be updated. This proposal may be resubmitted together with proposals to update the BTs for these individual buildings.
