Abstract
Reports results of a study to determine whether the subject searching of masters theses could be based on titles, so providing a short cut in the cataloguing of theses in libraries with backlogs of such materials in their cataloguing departments. The initial part of the study compared the first word of a Library of Congress Subject Heading with words in the title of each thesis in a sample to fing how often there was a match. Results indicate that an increase in the number of words that appear in the titles do not improve the probability of a match. On the contrary, fewer words in the title increased the probability of a match. The second part of the study was more qualitative in nature and suggested some of the reasons for the lack of a match between subject concept and title concept
