I reported these three resources today after talking with Karen Coyle about HIV and AIDS in LCSH.

The subdivision –Patients has a scope note which says:

Use as a topical subdivision under individual diseases and types of diseases.

Obviously, “HIV-positive persons” is neither an individual disease nor a type of disease.

Update 2016-08-30

Not that anyone emailed me to say so or anything…

Scope note is: Here are entered works on Nightmare on Superman films discussed collectively. Works on individual Superman films are entered under the specific title.

I believe the phrase “Nightmare on” is not meant to be there and is a copy/paste error from Nightmare on Elm Street films
