As always — check out the full approved list, and be sure to read through the newest tentative list and to send feedback to LC! Your feedback matters, as PSD says:

“Each Tentative List includes an email address to which comments on the proposals may be submitted. PSD accepts comments from LC and SACO catalogers, other library and archive professionals, lawmakers, and members of the general public. The comment period lasts approximately one month, beginning with the publication of the Tentative List and continuing until the closing date indicated on the list.”

The following are newly approved headings which I proposed [or canceled LCSH in favor of NARs]

  • Privilege (Social psychology)
  • BR563.W45 [class number for Christianity — History — By region or country –America — North America — United States — By race or ethnic group, A-Z — Whites]
  • Hawkman (Fictitious character) [Canceled in favor of NAR]

Onto the headings!
