Browse Searches: Subject Heading Browse

A Subject Heading Browse search is a search of the string of characters found in the subject heading fields of the record. Both Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) and National Library of Medicine's Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) are used in Franklin and this browse search merges both heading types in a single results list.

Examples of subject headings (entering double dashes, --, is optional)::

    hardy, thomas, 1840-1928--criticism and interpretation
    psychology, experimental

You may also use the results of any search to determine appropriate subject headings.
