Title
Scope notes in Library of Congress Subject Headings
Source
Cataloging and classification quarterly. 1(1981) nos.2/3, S.95-104
Year
1981
Abstract
Scope notes from Library of Congress Subject Headings are examined for 1) adherence to principles enunciated in the introduction to the list; 2) peculiarities of subject headings associated with such notes; 3) the structure of the notes; and 4) typical patterns associated with certain categories of subject headings. Scope notes are shown to enable catalogers to apply subject headings consistently and readers to distinguish related headings knowledgeably.
