Updated MODS Records from UM

We finally got around to updating the MODS records for our two collections we're data providing through MODS -- History of Math and Michigan Counties. The latter is in the Aquifer portal:

(search "The University of Michigan, University Library")

Mostly these were tweaks to conform to the new-ish Aquifer Guidelines. However, we are planning to do something interesting with the call numbers in the original MARC records we're mapping to MODS. We plan on attaching High-Level Browse topics, based on these call numbers, to the MODS records. If anyone has suggestions for what MODS field to place these topics in, that would be much appreciated. We were originally thinking Genre, but that doesn't seem quite right.
