Present from CPSO: M. Wewerka, R. Goudreau, D. Thompson, J. Young, W. Robboy, M. Hoban, R. Spalding


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Great Barrier Island (N.Z. : Island)

This island as a physical feature is coterminous with the former county of New Zealand with the same name. The existing name authority record for the county is valid also for the island. No separate subject authority record is needed and the proposal is not necessary.

Growing up

The concept of "growing up" encompasses many aspects, including physical and psychological development. The note included with the proposal indicates that the proposal was intended to cover the psychological aspects only. This concept seems to be covered by other already-existing headings, especially Maturation (Psychology) and Adolescent psychology. The titles cited seem to be literary, so perhaps a genre heading for the type of work may be desired. The relationship with other headings should be investigated. The proposal may be resubmitted if necessary.

Operation Joint Guardian, 1999-

There is a reference from Operation Joint Guardian on the name authority record for KFOR (Organization). The name of the organization may be appropriate as a heading for the work being cataloged instead of a separately-established subject heading. The relationship of the proposed subject heading and the existing name heading should be investigated. The proposal may be resubmitted if necessary.
