Changes were made as indicated on the approved list.

Subject Headings

Apabhraṃśa language

According to Ethnologue, Apabhraṃśa is an alternate name of Maithili, a modern Indo-Aryan language of India and Nepal. The relationship between Apabhraṃśa and Maithili should be investigated to determine whether separate headings are necessary. If so, then Apabhraṃśa should be qualified appropriately. The proposal may be resubmitted.

Gdańsk (Poland)--History--Siege, 1807

In order to facilitate search and discovery of headings for sieges that occurred as part of wars, a BT the form [War]--Campaigns--[Place] is being added to all such headings. The BTs will be added to existing headings offlist.

Water-supply engineering

Because Water resources is a UF to the heading Water-supply, the meeting does not consider Water resource engineering and Water resources engineering to be necessary references to Water-supply engineering. The proposal was not approved.
