I am interested in the following questions
Do you have any good sources for group names? Canadian as well as American
Have you made up any new subject headings for topics where there are no subject headings?
What do you think would be the most efficient way to change subject headings?
How would you solve the issue of different spellings for group names? Many Library Systems don't use see and see also reference anymore.
Have any of you used the "Open refine" tool to help clean up your subject headings?
