Subject Headings

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.
