What to put in the category column?

For the “category” column in this universal re-mapping spreadsheet, the category name can be library-defined and does not need to come from any officially controlled vocabulary.

The purpose of this column is twofold:

  1. To allow libraries to organize into logical categories the work they are doing to reduce harm in the subject description.
  2. To allow other collaborators on this spreadsheet to quickly find work that may be relevant to their user population or any metadata work they are doing.
