Keyword Searching vs. Subject Searching
Subject headings are terminology carefully selected and applied to particular items so as to avoid the scattering of related subjects under different headings. When you are browsing through subject headings, you are looking through a collection of carefully selected relevant items.
Subject headings can be found near the bottom of any catalog item page.
