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. 


For resources on the U.S. Constitution, use the subject heading United States. Constitution.”   Among the more specific subject headings you will see (i.e. sub-headings) will be those for specific AmendmentsTo find resources on the U.S. Supreme Court, use the subject heading "United States. Supreme Court."  You can then narrow your search using related sub-heading such as "United States. Supreme Court -- Decision making" or "United States. Supreme Court -- History."
