the Most of Subject Heading Searching
advantage of a subject heading search is that it provides a
more focused search.
disadvantage is that it's hard to know what LCSH term will be used
for a topic.
A good strategy is:
- First, use
your own terms in a keyword search.
- Then look
at the records for books that are on your topic.
- Jot down
any good subject terms that are listed and use them later in subject
- Click on
the linked subject term.
