Decision Regarding the Final Disposition of LCSH Headings for Video Recordings

LC has published Decision regarding the final disposition of LCSH headings for video recordings.
In summary, the decisions are:
  • Topical headings (MARC tag 150) denoting a genre or form of video recording will be cancelled in favor of the correlated film headings;
  • The heading Video mini-series will be revised to Film mini-series and the heading Television mini-series will be retained;
  • The existing topical heading Interactive video will be made plural and a genre/form heading will be created; and,
  • Genre/form headings for Internet videos, podcasts, and webisodes will be created.
