Integrating LCSH and MeSH in Information Systems
Manuscript for a book chapter in Subject Retrieval in a Networked Environment (see full bibliographic citation), adapted from a presentation given at an IFLA Satellite Meeting held in Dublin, OH, 14-16 August 2001.
The Library of Congress Subject Headings system, and the National Library of Medicine's Medical Subject Headings thesaurus have been mapped. The mapping data has been entered into 7XX fields of USMARC authority records. The data continues to be updated as subject headings are added, deleted, or changed in both information languages. It is planned to distribute the mapping data in both MARC and non-MARC formats to libraries, vendors, bibliographic utilities and other developers of information systems.
