The book discusses the nature and importance of subject analysis and subject authority control in the retrieval tools used in libraries and information centers. Topics covered include book indexing, automatic indexing, indexing software, database design, and the literature of indexing. It attempts to project the nature of subject analysis systems requirements into the future and to draw some conclusions about what new information professionals should be taught, and what skills they need to acquire to develop and operate subject analysis systems into the next century.
