Billiards is a game not a sport; therefore the people who play it are not athletes. The proposal was not approved.
The OED makes it clear that postcolonialism is not just the cultural legacy, as stated in the proposed scope note, but relates to the government, economic situation, etc. The meeting does not feel that the scope note is necessary. Postcolonialism is not an NT of Colonies, thus, the BT Political science will be retained. The proposal was not approved.
Sexual minority families
The meaning of the proposed heading is unclear. One meaning of the heading could be that if one member of a family is a member of a sexual minority, then the whole family is a sexual minority, which might be untrue. The patterns cited are not analogous. Disabled veterans' families means "the family of a disabled veteran," which is not the same thing as characterizing the entire family as disabled veterans. Minority families would be families in which all the members are minorities. Sexual minority parents is a class of persons heading, but families headings are not classes of persons headings. The proposal was not approved.
