November 10, 2010

PSD policy specialist responsible for this weekly list: L. Dechman



Works on mysticism in Judaism should be classed in the general works number, BM723, under the caption “Jewish way of life. Spiritual life. Mysticism. Personal religion.” Since Mysticism is included in the hierarchy directly above the proposed number, it should not be repeated as a special subject on its own. The proposal was not approved.

Subject Headings

Subdivisions to be added to lists of free-floating subdivisions:

H 1156, Literatures
$x Calvinist authors

Other decisions:

Astronomy in folk literature

[topic] in … phrase headings are not made for the individual genres of literature; phrase headings of the type [topic] in literature are used instead. For the work being cataloged, the existing subject heading Astronomy in literature should be used. The proposal was not approved.
