Summary Report of Student Studies of the Subject Headings Used in the University of California, Berkeley Subject Catalog. Final Report.
This report combines and summarizes four 1972 student studies of some of the relationships between the University of California, Berkeley subject catalog and the Library of Congress (LC) subject authority list. It was found that about 1 0/0 of the subject headings used at Berkeley were out of date according to the LC list. About 5 0/0 of the subject headings were unauthorized by the LC list and rules. Approximately 40 0/0 of the Berkeley subject were exact matches with the subject headings given in the LC authority list and could therefore be printed out from a computer tape file of this list and used in the catalog directly without modification.
