The Subject files were created so that ANTswers could suggest databases or online resources (eBooks, eJournals) based on a list of subject terms. Using the Library of Congress major subject headings a list of narrow subject headings was developed for each subject, organized by excel, and then assigned to the appropriate subject bibliographer. The subject bibliographer then assigned 2-3 resources to each narrower term (keyword or phrase). They could also delete or add (?) terms if they felt it was necessary. While our files are for an academic library, this same process could be followed for creating subject files for a public library.
There are 67 Subject files, they are designated as s_”name of subject” and range from 1 KB to 57 KB in size. They can be downloaded individually or as a collection in a zip file.
