New LCSH!

This post is the opinion of Netanel Ganin and is in no way to be construed as an official communication from any section of any institution. 

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]

  • ASMR (Intersensory effect)
  • Identical twins
  • Sabbath
    • Added a UF of ‘Shabbat’
  • Coloring books [LCGFT term]

 

And now, onto the headings!
