Inherently Legal Subject Headings (ILSH) Project

The Inherently Legal Subject Headings (ILSH) Project is a group adding SEE references to LC subject headings.
The purpose of the Project is to submit to LC proposals for adding "See" references (4XX [Heading] - Law and legislation) to subject authority records of potentially ambiguous legal headings. Adding the "See" references will clarify the inherently legal status of the headings, and will decrease at least some of the misuses of "Law and legislation" in our shared bibliographic databases.
They provide a e-mail address to comment, or inquire about participating.

Thanks Eric for letting me know about this.
