Cataloging and Metadata Management: Using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®) in Cataloging

Module 8—Names or Work Titles as Subjects


Personal Names

  • For works about an individual and/or the individual’s work, assign the appropriate heading from the NAF for that person using the MARC 600 tag

  • Generally coordinate personal names used as subjects with the appropriate MeSH descriptor for the person’s specialty or other relevant descriptor from the Persons (M01) tree if applicable

  • In cases where a MeSH descriptor exists for the person’s theories (e.g. Jungian Theory), use judgment in determining whether both the descriptor and the personal name are appropriate
