Guidelines for Assigning Biography Subject Headings

Russia: General Rule

For people living before 1917, use Russia.
For those whose primary career was from 1917-1991, use Soviet Union.
The only time LC has assigned Biography with Former Soviet republics is for books such as Who's who in Russia and the CIS countries.
