5 - Subject Headings

Subject Headings in Action!

Let’s see how using subject headings can help your research in the Academic Search Premier database available from IUPUI University Library. To watch the video, click below.

NOTE: Different databases can have different subject headings. So, while sometimes you can use a subject-heading in multiple databases, sometimes the headings are unique to the database. For example, PubMed uses MeSH (Medical Subject Headings), IUCAT (the library catalog for books) uses LCSH (Library of Congress Subject Headings). Some can be very different from those found in Academic Search Premier.
