About LC Subject Headings

LC Subject headings are used by librarians to classify books for subject searching. They offer more control than keyword searching because subject headings group like items regardless of the words or language used.

The boxes below call out some suggested subject headings that might be useful, depending on your topic. They are grouped in the following categories:

  1. Death and dying
  2. Health
  3. Science
  4. Sex / Sexuality / Gender
  5. Miscellaneous

If you're unclear about which category your topic might fall, refer to the top of each boxes to see a list of topics addressed.

Additional Tips:

  1. Change the drop-down to SUBJECT and search your topic to see other relevant subject headings.
  2. Click "search MOBIUS" to see results from the entire consortium. 
  3. Try a keyword search if a subject searching is too limiting. 
  4. Note that there isn't one general, broad subject heading for 'Protestant'; instead, there are headings for different churches. To determine if there are books from a protestant perspective on your topic, just do a SUBJECT search using the root of the heading. For example, 'Sex role -- Religious aspects' pulls up a list of various subject headings with that root. You'll find 'Sex role -- Religious aspects -- Pentacostal churches', 'Sex role -- Religious aspects -- Seventh-Day Adventists' and more.
