Abstract
Finding needed environmental information by the library users creates some difficulties. This paper evaluates Library of Congress subject headings related to a broad range of environmental topics. The evaluation is limited to entries found in the subject file of the WLN database. The article also presents recommendations and solutions to improve access to "green information." Green information/access to environmental information/green catalog/ evaluation of subject headings/Library of Congress Subject Headings.
