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

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

H 1180, Plants & crops

$x Seeds $x Climatic factors

Other decisions:

Cookery, Chinese

According to Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings, H373, sec.3, for headings that are based on another heading, UF references are not added that would duplicate references on the basic heading. Since the UF Cuisine already appears on the heading Cookery, the proposal to add UF Chinese cuisine on the heading Cookery, Chinese was not approved.

German literature--Comic book adaptations

The work being cataloged is an adaptation of a single novel so that this heading would be too broad for the work. The proposal was not approved.


This heading was proposed for a biography of an individual member of a political party. Biographies of members of a particular political party are represented by the heading for the party with the subdivision --Biography. The proposal was not approved.

Rock en español

This proposal does not appear to represent an individual musical genre and separate headings are not established for rock music in specific languages. The proposal was not approved.
