Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Human behavior and traffic safety

Human behavior has traditionally been viewed as an element in traffic safety and is inherent in the meaning of that heading. The heading Traffic safety by itself has been and may continue to be assigned for works that focus on human behavior as it affects traffic safety. The proposal was not approved.

Phnom Aural Wilfe Sanctuary (Cambodia): Phnom Samkos Wildlife Sanctuary (Cambodia)

Wildlife refuges are established according to the rules for parks (see the Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings, H 1925). Sec. 1.a. of that instruction sheet specifies that these headings should be established in the vernacular of the country where the entities are located. In the event that the vernacular form cannot be found, the headings should be established as provisional headings, following the procedures described in H 1334, sec. 2.d.(3). The proposals may be resubmitted.


This is the name of an annual fundraising campaign in Finland and should be established as a name heading. The proposal was not approved.
