Present from CPSO: P. Weiss, K. Griffiths, R. Goudreau, L. Dechman, J. Young



The meeting felt that this topic would be better classed in HE. A substitute proposal to establish numbers at HE1036-HE1038 was added to the list.

Subject Headings

Audley End (England : House)

No explanation was provided as to why it is necessary to add the term House to the qualifier for this heading. There does not appear to be a conflict with any other entity by the same name. The proposal may be resubmitted with an explanation.

Ayioi Omologites (Nicosia, Cyprus)

This appears to be a section of the city of Nicosia. City sections are established as name headings. The proposal to establish it as a subject heading was not approved.

BMW Welt (Munich, Germany)

A heading for this building has already been established in the form BMW Erlebnis- und Auslieferungszentrum (Munich, Germany). Further research is needed to determine whether that form is still valid, in which case a reference should be added from BMW Welt (Munich, Germany), or whether the existing heading should be changed to BMW Welt (Munich, Germany). The proposal may be resubmitted.

Environmental planning

This topic is covered by the use of the free-floating subdivision --Planning under the heading Environmental protection. An authority record has been created for that string, with the UF Environmental planning. The proposal was not approved.


Ampelography is the science of identifying and classifying grape varieties. It should be established as a separate heading if needed. The proposal was not approved.

Park Hill (Sheffield, England : Planned community)

Planned communities are established as name headings. The proposal to establish this as a subject heading was not approved.

Pulkautal (Austria)

Pulkautal is the valley of the Pulkau River in Austria. It is commonly referred to in English as the Pulkau Valley. A heading for the river should first be established, and the valley heading should then be established using the English form of name (see the Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings, H 800, sec. 8). The proposal may be resubmitted.

Rye (Vic.)

This is the name of a populated place and as such should be established as a jurisdictional name heading. The proposal was not approved.

Tifinagh alphabet; Tamajaq language

The relationship between the proposed heading Tamajaq language and the existing heading Tamashek language requires further investigation. It appears that the Tamashek language may actually be a group of four languages, one of which is Tamajaq, in which case the existing heading would need to be revised. For the proposed heading Tifinagh alphabet, a UF should be added from the variant form Tifinay alphabet. The proposals may be resubmitted.
