This book is a companion to the 19th edition of the Sears List and a complete course in the theory and practice of the List for practitioners, teachers, and learners. The object of this small, practical introduction is to be simple, clear, and illustrative, assuming the reader has little prior knowledge either of the Sears List or of subject headings work in general.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Its enduring appeal lies in part on its emphasis on specific and direct subject entries, its acceptance of common words as subject headings, and its use of key headings to guide catalogers in creating new headings. At its core there lies the recognition that the so-called world of knowledge more closely resembles an ever-expanding universe than a celestial body fixed in its orbit....a welcome introduction to an often-intimidating aspect of librarianship. -- . * American Reference Books Annual, June 2008 *
I would recommend this book as a classroom text and as an aid for library staff that have little access to formal training. -- Jean Weihs * Technicalities *
