Library of Congress Subject Headings

A standardized list of terms (or thesaurus) established by the Library of Congress for use as subject headings. Subject headings, are words or groups of words under which books and other materials on any given subject are listed in a library's catalog, or database. Lists of subject headings generally include references made to and from each term, notes explaining the scope or usage of certain headings, and occasionally corresponding classification numbers.
