Subject Heading and Term Source Codes

Introduction
Subject Source Codes
Subject Source Code Usage in MARC and MODS/MADS

Introduction

Subject Sources identifies subject heading lists, thesauri, and databases that are the sources of topical, geographic, chronological, and other headings or terms used to describe the subject content of a resource, and assigns a code to each source. The purpose of this list is to identify the vocabulary used in records.  For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes.

These sources are general subject heading and thesauri, such as the Library of Congress Subject Headings, along with a number of focused subject term lists like Medical Subject Headings or Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names.  Additional specialized lists are provided with source codes in
            Genre/Form Term and Code Source Codes
            Occupation Term Source Codes
            Function Term Source Codes  
Since general thesauri often contain a broad spectrum of terms, including genre, forms, occupations, and functions, the source codes in this list may be used in the metadata elements identified for each of the specialized source lists.  Likewise, the special thesauri listed there may also be used in the metadata elements identified below under usage.

Some subject heading lists incorporate names and titles and others employ independent name and title lists for parts of a subject heading.  Thus the lists assigned source codes in Name and Title Source Codes may also be used in the metadata elements identified below under usage.

Classification schemes and subject category codes include caption terms and, frequently, index terms that identify the classes in the scheme and the category codes. Some systems use those caption and index terms as subject terms in bibliographic records. Thus the lists assigned source codes in Classification Scheme Source Codes and Subject Category Code Source Codes may also be used in the metadata elements identified below under usage, when the terms from those classification schemes and subject category codes are used as subject terms.

Arrangement of the List

Entries in the list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source documentation. The citations are linked to the online source for some codes.

Code Structure

Each code consists of a maximum of 12 lowercase alphabetic characters.  Possible additions to codes are described in Source Codes.
