Your response in another thread led me to check why my count of hymnals in a hand-built collection was so much larger than type:hymnals. Part of the answer lies in books that are both ritual books and hymnals e.g. Book of Worship. But there are some clear-cut cases where "Monograph" can be changed to "Hymnal":

Sure. I've passed these along to our metadata people to get the resource types evaluated and changed.

We've updated these to the type "hymnal" with one exception.

Songs of the Dawn has the subtitle “Selections from the Poems of Horatius Bonar, Charlotte Murray, and Others”. We went with a type of "poetry" in that case.

Thanks ... and, yes, I've accepted that I have a different distinction between hymns and poetry than Logos. Something going back to early Greek, Latin and Syriac hymns ...
