A scholarly study _about_ werewolves in fiction would be coded with a $x instead of a $v.

It is true that when converted to a string without delimiters, it becomes impossible to tell the difference.

There may be a scholarly study written about how werewolves have been depicted in fiction.  That would not qualify as Werewolf fiction, the genre.

Subjects and genres are in the same index and facet, although they appear separately in the full record display, as you would expect.

We just left a catalog that separated subjects and genres.  I think I would still be asking the question if we have stayed.

How do they function for users in your library catalog? Display? Retrieval in which searches? Limits?

Hi,

Not sure why would you want to flip 650 Subject Added Entry--Topical Term to 655  Index Term--Genre/Form. They are different.

I think there is no difference and I'm considering flipping (locally) those 650s to 655s.  Is there a difference I'm missing?
