The subfield coding in 2005278434 and 84004886 has been corrected.

The heading Architecture--Social aspects should not be used.  We will add a 450 field to the record for Architecture and society, and will correct the relevant LC bibliographic records.

Subject: [Classweb-users] Clarification of subject headings

In the  subject heading Readers -- Biography, should the subfield for Biography be x or v. In the record LCN 2002030772 the subfield is x, but record LCN
2005278434 subfield v is used.

In LCN 84004886 the following headings are shown: Readers|z United States; 
Readers|x Canada.

Since Biography is the subject of  Reader I think  it should be x and so too for United States.

What is the difference between the subject heading Architecture and society and Architecture -- Social aspects?
