About this book

LCSH are increasingly seen as 'the' English language controlled vocabulary, despite their lack of a theoretical foundation, and their evident US bias. In mapping exercises between national subject heading lists, and in exercises in digital resource organization and management, LCSH are often chosen because of the lack of any other widely accepted English language standard for subject cataloguing.

This practical guide to LCSH features topics including the background and history, subject heading lists and LCSH in the online environment. There is a strong emphasis throughout on worked examples and practical exercises in the application of the scheme, and a full glossary of terms is supplied. No prior knowledge or experience of subject cataloguing is assumed.

Media reviews

"I would recommend this book to both new cataloguers and lone librarians who find themselves cataloguing with no formal training. I would also recommend it to anyone who feels that they could do with a fresh and fun reminder of the basics of subject headings."
