October 8, 2008

Present from CPSO: L. Dechman, D. Thompson, J. Young


Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Berlin, Battle of, Berlin, Germany, 1945

Operations for particular battles are not given as UFs to the battle. The operation may be separately established if desired. The proposed change was not approved.

Black Power conferences

The existing heading in LCSH for this concept is Black power--Congresses. The proposal was not approved.

Himalaja-Stiftung im DAV; Deutsche Himalaja Stiftung

These entities are corporate bodies, and the headings should be established in the Name Authority File. The proposals were not approved.

Orient in motion pictures

The subdivision --In motion pictures may be used as a free-floating subdivision with geographic headings, like Orient. The proposal was not necessary.

Panic of 1819, United States (Financial crisis); Depressions--1819

The existing heading Depressions--1819 is valid according to the scope note under Depressions. It seems that the heading Depressions--1819 would be sufficient to cover the concept of the 1819 financial crisis without establishing a specific heading for the Panic of 1819. The proposal for the Panic was not approved, making the proposal to add a reference for the Panic on the Depressions--1819 heading unnecessary.
