Present from CPSO: L. El-Hoshy, K. Griffiths, R. Goudreau, D. Thompson, T. Bishop


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

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

H 1200, Wars

$x Mexican Americans [footnote 1]

Other decisions:

Art, Formative

Research needs to be done in English-language sources to determine and document the nature and scope of formative art. It is not clear whether it is primarily a movement/style of the Arab countries. A proposal to establish a heading in uninverted form (cf. H 306) may be resubmitted with the appropriate reference structure based on the results of the research.

Human trafficking survivors

This proposal was not approved because a heading already exists in the form Human trafficking victims.

Mathematics and state

This proposal was not approved. No headings in the form [topic] and state have been established since 1980, when the subdivision --Government policy was introduced for free-floating use under topics (cf. H 1642). The heading Mathematics--Government policy should be assigned instead.

Umm el-Marra Site (Syria)

This proposal wsa not approved because a heading already exists for this archaeological site in the form Umm al-Marã, Tall (Syria).
