Title
Specificity, syndetic structure, and subject access to works about individual corporate bodies
Source
Library resources and technical services. 42(1998) no.4, S.272-281

Abstract
Describes the evolution of subject access to works about individual corporate bodies in Anglo-American subject cataloguing practice and compares this with similar problems of works of individual biography. Explores the lack of comparable levels of subject access for the 2 classes of works. Automation may have been part of the problem, but through automated maintenance routines, it offers the best hope for a viable solution. Recommendations are made that would restore parity in level of subject access by using syndetic reference structure and preserving the principle of specific entry upon which most subject access systems in Anglo-American libraries are based
