Parks and Forests

LC is seeking coments on Government-Designated Parks and Forests, Proposed Change in Policy.
The Cataloging Policy and Support Office is considering changing the current practice so that headings of this type that are established in the subject authority file would be usable only as subject headings and would represent only the physical, geographic entities. If it is necessary to assign a heading for a park or forest in a 1XX or 7XX field, a separate name heading would be established to represent the entity as a corporate body. The name heading would be tagged 110 and would have the qualifier (Agency).
