Subject access looking forward
For six years SCIS cataloguers have been including subject terms from both the SCIS Subject Headings List (scisshl) and the Schools Online Thesaurus (ScOT) with a view to giving schools a choice of subject vocabulary that suits the learning architecture in their system or school.
SCIS is evaluating this practice of maintaining two subject vocabularies, and invites comments on the implications of a new vision of subject access integrated across library and e-learning systems, with alignment to Australian curriculum and multilingual support.
