Abstract

The BISG’s Subject Codes committee follows a structured, consensus-driven process to update and maintain more than 4800 subject headings. The latest version added 210 subject codes, changed 90 literals, reactivated a previously inactive code, and deactivated 8 codes. Changes affected 23 of the 54 main subject areas.
