Subject headings

Subject headings are words or groups of words under which books, journal articles, or other materials on a given subject are listed in a library catalog or database. Lists of subject headings generally include cross references from subordinate terms to primary terms and notes defining what is included within the scope of a given term. These lists of pre-defined, controlled subject terms are particularly helpful when searching databases. (See also Library of Congress subject headings, thesaurus)
