Our district administration has requested the numbers of books we have in our 
collections that would be considered multicultural. Last year we all used our own 
definition of multicultural so our numbers were low. This year, they have requested 
we use a broad definition. Now I have a bibliography with over 1000 books. I would 
like to add a subject heading to these records so I can set up a visual search 
button to find these books, and any new ones we add to the collection. 
The Sears term is "multiculturalism" but putting that in a 650a tag seems to me to 
be saying this book is "about" multiculturalism. 
What Marc tag would you use and what exact term? Sandra Carswell, Librarian S.C.
