Sears List of Subject Headings
  • Speaking as a cataloguing instructor: Whether you catalog in Sears/Dewey or LC, the introduction to ANY Sears List of Subject Heading should be required reading! Since, originally, Minnie Earl Sears designed her subject-heading book to be a derivative of Library of Congress Subject Headings, no one should feel they are "slumming" if they take the time to learn a little. Every cataloguer, no matter his/her specialty, should read that intro and be able to find his/her way around the subject heading tools.

  • I needed this book for school - it was very expensive but there didn't seem to be any choice. This book is a list of topics, basically, used in cataloguing for libraries. Well, I used it for two assignments, passed the class, became a librarian, got a job in a library, and have not used it once since! I am grateful it helped me on those assignments, but I figure I would have saved money if I had rented the book for $100 an hour instead! I need to see where I can resell, don't i?!?

  • Good

  • With expanded and updated entries, anyone who processes and catalogs library materials needs this valuable tool. Finding MARC record subject entries is tremendously simplified and understandable.

  • Out of date, but still of some use.

  • Pleased to have this source in our collection.

  • This is a very good replacement of our old edition of Sears; a Very crucial tool for cataloging library materials.

  • This book was delivered in a great amount of time. It is brand new and still in the wrapper. I received this is a short amount of time after ordering it.
