Monographic Material

  • For textual material, examine the title page, preface, tables of contents, and other introductory material to determine the major topics covered in the item
  • For other formats, watch or listen to the introductory material and consult any summaries provided to get enough information to determine the major topics covered in the item

Continuing Resources

  • For continuing resources recognize that you are generally only seeing a small portion of the overall work. Subject terms to represent the entire run of a serial are likely to be broader and more general than terms that would apply to specific articles in the journal
