The Horseless Carriage Library is in the wrong catagory. How do I get it moved?

I help the HCFI Library and noticed that it is in the "Recreation: Autos: Enthusiasts: Antique: Clubs" category. The HCFI Library was a part of the Horseless Carriage Club but split off as a separate entity in 1985. How do I get the HCFI Library moved to a different category?

I'm not seeing a "perfect match", perhaps Reference: Libraries: Research or a new category : Reference: Libraries: Subject Specific: Automotive.

The Library's mission is:
HCFI is Dedicated to making automobile research and restoration information readily available to hobbyists, restorers, and scholars world wide.

Since this would be a new sub category it wouldn't have an editor. I know of several Automotive Research Library's that could be included, several of which I and my family are members of. It would be useful to include: HCFI.org, the Nethercutt Library & Museum, the National Auto museum / library in Reno (originally the Harrah's Collection museum), and others that might be valuable to scholars and auto enthusiasts alike.

I would be willing to volunteer as editor of this category.
Thanks for considering my request to recategorize the Horseless Carriage Library.

At the top of the category where the site is currently listed, there is an "Update Listing" link, which allows you to suggest changes to a listing (use the same URL as listed in the category).
Next to this link is one to apply to be an editor - Reference/Libraries/Subject_Specific is too wide in scope for a new editor, so the option is not available there.
Best would be to chose a subcategory (or a smaller category elsewhere) to start with, then apply for the larger area when you have some experience.
The creation and/or reorganization of categories is conducted by editors on our internal forums and is essentially fuelled by having a sufficient number of sites to list.
