Medicine titles

Effective July 1, Library of Congress will begin a six month trial to stop assigning LC class numbers and LC Subject Headings to clinical medicine titles not added to LC's permanent collection.  The National Library of Medicine will continue to provide MeSH headings and NLM class numbers.  HSCL is going to keep track of titles received to assess the impact.


Doug discussed the need to document whether an item is a gift as part of the cataloging stats.
