Present from CPSO: M. Wewerka, R. Goudreau, W. Robboy, J. Young


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Folk poetry, Dagur

This proposal needs a broader-term reference Dagur poetry, but that heading is not yet established. A proposal for that heading would require a broader-term reference Dagur literature, which is also not yet established. The proposal for Folk poetry, Dagur may be resubmitted with the proposals needed for the reference hierarchy.

Genggong ensembles

Since Genggong is being add as a UF reference on Jew's harp, a heading cannot be constructed using the reference term. A heading for a musical ensemble based on a specific instrument is intended to represent a group of that instrument only. If the work deals with an ensemble of genggong players only, a proposal may be resubmitted for Jew's harp ensembles.

Preventive war (Military science)

It would be helpful to have contrasting scope notes between the proposed heading and the existing heading Preemptive attack (Military science). Additionally since war is implicitly a military science heading there is no need for the parenthetical qualifier. The proposal may be resubmitted with the contrasting scope note.
