Libraries use what we call “Subject Headings” to help classify (i.e. categorize) resources. When you are using Countess, our library’s online catalogue (or using any library’s catalogue for that matter), take notice of the subject headings being used for your topic. Like most libraries, we use Library of Congress (LC) subject headings. These can help you narrow or broaden your topic to find resources more relevant to your research. Below is a sampling of the LC subject headings used for the topics on and related to Halloween.
Halloween (add subheadings such as "- Fiction" or "-Juvenile poetry"
Horror tales, American
Mummies in literature
Vampires in literature
Witchcraft in literature
Gothic revival (literature)
