As always — check out the full approved list

New LCSH is Children’s Literature tested, Adult Leisure approved


A couple notes before we begin:

  • Per the Policy and Standards division editorial meeting: Illegal aliens and its related headings are being changed — my take on that can be found here:
  • Secondly — Asexuality and Asexual people did not make it in this round, but never fear, a crack-team of catalogers worked to resubmit them and we hope they’ll be accepted next time they’re discussed.
  • Third — Superman has been removed from LCSH and moved to the Name Authority File where he belongs. Why do I highlight this?
