LC Headings Validated

Most of the English terms in the database have now been validated against LC authority records from Simon Spero's Fred 2.0 project. These records were harvested over a period of time in late 2006 and so are not the most current ones. For this and other reasons, the validation performed on the lcsh-es.org database is a not a hundred percent reliable, especially for subdivisions, but it's a step forward. I hope to improve the process in the future.

Terms that could not be validated appear in a lighter font weight. Some of these were identified as "see from" tracings in the LC records and are italicized; at some point I will turn them into cross references and insert the valid term.
