Cookery is soon to be cooking

That title will likely make sense only to catalogers.

Read this announcement from the Library of Congress!

After confusing our patrons (and ourselves) with the subject heading Cookery, "... the ABA Policy and Standards Division (PSD) of the Library of Congress is in the initial planning stages of a project to revise the headings used in this area."

Thank heaven for the ability to make global changes in our on-line catalogs. Had this change occurred some 20 or so years ago, we'd all be wearing out every eraser in sight.

However, this means I'll have to update some of the handouts I use when I teach cataloging.
