Subject headings for children's materials

"Subject cataloging, in principle, is the same in all types of libraries. Variations and adaptions are developed as these principles are applied to special collections or general collections for limited or specific patrons. This list of subject headings is intended for use wherever material for use by children from the elementary through the junior high school level is brought together in the public or school library.

Child Dependency Status Standard Classification

"Child dependency is an important variable in determining the composition of families and households. Census and many other surveys (eg Household Labour Force Survey, New Zealand Income Survey, and Household Economic Survey) use the child dependency classifications to derive information about dependent and non-dependent children. Three classifications are included in the scope of this standard: dependent child under 18 indicator classification; dependent young person indicator classification; child dependency status classification.

International Classification of Childhood Cancer

"The classification of childhood cancer is based on tumor morphology and primary site with an emphasis on morphology rather than the emphasis on primary site for adults.
In the ICCC, there are certain combinations of histologies, behaviors, and/or sites that are not considered in the schema, and for these we have added a group for unknown ICCC, which includes in situ tumors and some malignant tumors. Therefore, when we produce all sites based on ICCC, we will exclude these cases."

Gross Motor Function Classification System

"The Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) is a 5 level classification system that describes the gross motor function of children and youth with cerebral palsy on the basis of their self-initiated movement with particular emphasis on sitting, walking, and wheeled mobility. Distinctions between levels are based on functional abilities, the need for assistive technology, including hand-held mobility devices (walkers, crutches, or canes) or wheeled mobility, and to a much lesser extent, quality of movement.
