LIBRARY OF CONGRESS SUBJECT HEADINGS


Items in the catalog are categorized into groups and given labels or subject headings.

The Library of Congress determines these subject headings based on the content of the material and then assigns a word or phrase to the item that best describes its subject matter. This makes it easier for researchers and individuals to locate books and other material.
