The Lower East Side Librarian Library of Congress Subject Heading of the Week for Week 18, May 5, 2010 is:
I was hoping for something Cinco de Mayo ish, given the date of week 18, but this batch of cross reference changes to LIBRARY SCIENCE is as geekarrifically delicious as an authentic vegan burrito.
150 Library science [May Subd Geog] [sp 85076723]
* 450 UF Libraries—Administration CANCEL
* 450 UF Libraries—Organization CANCEL
* 550 BT Documentation CANCEL
* 550 BT Information science CANCEL
* 550 RT Documentation
* 550 RT Information science
So…LIBRARY ADMINISTRATION and ORGANIZATION are no longer Used For LIBRARY SCIENCE. And DOCUMENTATION and INFORMATION SCIENCE (along with BIBLIOGRAPHY) are Related, rather than Broader terms. Related only. Info science now gets its own umbrella. I blame the iSchools.
In case you're curious, and how could you not be, there are a bunch of Narrower Terms, as well:
Art museum librarianship [proposed]
Communication in library science.
Mentoring in library science.
Minorities in library science
Open and closed shelves.
Proposal writing in library science
Public services (Libraries)
Rare book librarianship
Technical services (Libraries)
Women in library science.
Runner up, because as always I ♥ me some creatures with silly names.
