question1.JPG How does a person find the proper subject headings for a search? It is easier than you might think.! Let's take Val's search from the previous slide "Hindu religion". Below is the first book in her list of results. Simply click on the Detalils link, and beside Subjects are the headings to describe that book.

In the example below. Hinduism; Gods, Hindu; India- - Religion are the three subject headings for this record. Clicking on any of these headings will bring up books classified under that particular subject. Note, that Hinduism is the first heading in the list, which means it is usually the primary heading.
