What is going to happen to subject headings of the type, [Topic] ¯ 20th
century ¯ Periodicals, in current serials when the 21st century
officially starts on Jan. 1, 2001?  Will we add another heading with
21st century as the period subdivision or just simply remove the
subdivision altogether? Or perhaps something else?

Are there plans in the works to update all current serials in this
category (by LC, CONSER?) or will people fix them as encountered?

Just curious,
