Present from CPSO: W. Robboy, R. Goudreau, D. Thompson, J. Young


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Academic presentations

The work being cataloged covers general public speaking skills. The appropriate heading is Public speaking. The proposal was not approved.

Archway Bridge (London, England)

This name has been used for two different bridges that have existed at different times on the same site; the proposed heading appears to be intended to cover both. Rather than a single heading for both bridges, a distinctive heading should be established for one of the bridges, or for each bridge if needed, qualified by dates if necessary in accordance with the Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings, H 1334, sec. 3c. The proposal may be resubmitted as one of two separate proposals, as needed.

Mulberry Plantation (Berkeley County, S.C.); Mulberry Plantation (Kershaw County, S.C.)

It is apparent from their reference structures that each of these proposed headings is intended to cover both a plantation and a house on that plantation. However, in each case the plantation and the house respectively have different names. Separate headings should be established for each plantation or house as needed. The proposals may be resubmitted.

National socialism wit and humor

The work being cataloged evidently deals with German humor during the Nazi period in general, rather than humor of the Nazi movement. The appropriate combination of headings is German wit and humor--History and criticism and National socialism. In any case the correct adjectival qualifier in a heading such as this one would be Nazi, as indicated in the general see reference from National socialist..... The proposal was not approved.

Tone Works (Wellington, Somerset, England)

This entity is evidently an individual name factory. Factories are established in the Name Authority File. The proposal was not approved.

Wirtschaftskammer Niederösterreich (Sankt Pölten, Austria: Building)

When a corporate body and the building it occupies have the same name, the corporate name heading for the body should be used for subject access for the building as well. The heading Wirtschaftskammer Niederösterreich is already established in the Name Authority File and should be used as the heading for the building. The proposal was not approved.
