Revised subject headings for art
submitted by NYC art catalogers

At the February 26th [2002] meeting of the Catalogers Discussion Group, the assembled art catalogers agreed to submit examples of the application of the revisions in LC subject headings for art topics. The revisions were implemented by LC on 1 February 2001 and the documentation may be found on the CPSO web site at http://lcweb.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/artcat.html. In the examples, the title is given and is followed by old-style and new-style headings. Some have changed, some haven't. A few of the examples have new-style headings only. Personal and corporate name and other non-topical headings, as well as added entries, have generally been omitted.

Please note that the 2001 instructions did not address architecture headings. The Cataloging Advisory Committee worked on guidelines which would address architecture headings following the model for fine arts headings. The CAC guidelines were not finished and released. In August 2008, LC issued a statement as part of the August 7th Weekly Editorial Meeting notes that architecture would include the subdivision "-- History" before century subdivisions, thus not being considered inherently historical as painting, sculpture, etc. are. Speculation on the arlis-cpdg list addressed the unfortunate variation between fine arts and architecture headings.
