Other decisions:

Atlantic Coast (Pernambuco)

This heading was not approved on Weekly List 4: Coasts are established for regions, countries, and first-order divisions that are treated exceptionally (e.g. U.S. and Australian states, Canadian provinces). The meeting feels that this practice is sufficient. An additional heading may be assigned to identify a specific locality. The proposal was not approved.

Disneyland Resort (Calif.)

Disneyland (Calif.) is an existing heading in LCSH and has been used for both Disneyland Park and Disneyland Resort. Books on Disneyland are not likely to clearly separate the park and the resort, therefore the meeting feels that two separate headings are not needed or practical for cataloging purposes. The existing heading Disneyland (Calif.) will be retained, and UFs will be added from Disneyland Resort (Calif.) and Disneyland Park (Calif.), along with a second BT Resorts--California. The proposal was not approved.

Employer-sponsored health insurance

The decision to use Insurance as the BT for all insurance headings was made in order to gather all insurance headings in one place. Access from the term Health insurance is provided via the inverted UF Health insurance, Employer-sponsored. The proposal was not approved.

Essener Domschatz (Essen, Germany)

This collection of liturgical objects should be established in the Name Authority File (per LCRS 21.30 H). The proposal to establish the collection as a subject heading was not necessary.

Tʿaebong (Kingdom)

The names of kingdoms should be established in the Name Authority File. The subject proposal was not necessary.

Urban architecture

The concept of urban architecture has been covered adequately in the past by assignment of the existing headings Architecture and City planning. The meeting wishes to continue past practice. The proposal was not approved.


Dresden (Germany)--History--Bombardment, 1945

In order to facilitate search and discovery of headings for bombardments that occurred as part of wars, a BT in the form [War]--Campaigns--[Place] is being added to all such headings. The proposal for the addition of the reference to Dresden (Germany)--History--Bombardment, 1945 is provided as an example. Appropriate BTs will be added to the other affected headings offlist.

Officials and employees of labor unions

The note under --Officials and employees in H 1095 is amended as follows:

Use under names of countries, cities, etc., and individual international and governmental agencies, under types of government agencies and types of labor unions. This subdivision may be further subdivided by place only when used under names of countries, cities, etc.
