Overview

Libraries must provide better access to their collections for all users, including Spanish-language materials. The American Library Association has recognized this increasing need. Subject Headings for School and Public Libraries: Bilingual Fourth Edition is the only resource available that provides both authorized and reference entries in English and Spanish. A first-check source for the most frequently used headings needed in school and public libraries, this book incorporates thousands of new and revised entries to assist in applying LCSH and CSH headings.

Of the approximately 30,000 headings listed, most include cross-references, and all of the cross-reference terms are translated. MARC21 tags are included for all authorized entries to simplify entering them into computerized catalogs, while indexes to all headings and free-floating subdivisions are provided in translation from Spanish to English. This book gives librarians access to accurate translations of the subject terms printed in books published and cataloged in English-speaking countries—invaluable information in settings with Spanish-speaking patrons.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This new edition (first, Headings for Children's Materials, Libraries Unlimited, 1993) provides librarians with a subject authority and companion to the LC list of headings, which should ease the process of automating the library catalog or changing from Sears to L.C.S.H.. The most-used LC names and subject headings are compiled with hundreds of names from the LC authority file, incorporating all current modifications of LCSH (18th edition) for the classification of children's and young adult material.
