Bates, Marcia J.

Explains seven types of subject descriptions commonly used in databases--hierarchical classification, category codes, subject headings, descriptors, faceted classification, post-controlled vocabulary, and natural language--and describes specific search techniques for taking advantage of the strengths of particular types of vocabularies. An overall strategy for identifying and using vocabulary types when approaching a new database is suggested. (MES)
