Cataloging productivity tools II, Subject headings for children /

This paper describes an Office of Research project for producing a database of subject headings and appropriate Dewey classification numbers used in Library-of-Congress-supplied bibliographic records for juvenile materials. Constructing the database required the use of sophisticated string matching algorithms, both to eliminate duplicates and to find partial matches of interest. Output of this processing was refined by manual review. The database is used by OCLC Forest Press to produce both print and electronic publications that aid catalogers in assigning children's subject headings.
