Subject Access

Several years back we went through the discussion on just how to distinguish between what an item was and what is was about. We ended up with field 655 for form/genre, which LC has yet to create authority records for. It was a useful distinction.

Now the visual folks have noticed that the depiction of something is not what something is about either. So MARC discussion paper 2005-01 Subject Access to Images. Something new to think about.
