Genre authority record after fields pertaining to the subject authority record have been deleted
LCSH form subdivision:$v Juvenile poetry
Solution: provide references or links between the equivalent terms. 7XX linking entry fields in the MARC 21 authority format are available to do this, but LCSH topical and genre subject authority records don’t yet include them. Also, many systems do not use them to generate links.
Our solution: add 555 see also references from one term to another and create needed authority records to enable these references
Locally created genre authority for the form subdivision Juvenile poetry, with see also reference to the LCSH genre heading Children’s poetry
Solution: add Newspapers as a broader term to the authority records for the NGL
