Subject headings and catalogue entries - coordinating work, Other Management

Subject Headings:

The coordinator must ensure correctness and consistency  in the subject headings used. The subject headings for the  document as a whole and for Cross References or Subject Analyticals  should be separately scrutinised. If necessary, the Authority File should be consulted and conformity ensured. Amendments, if any, should be noted and incorporated in the Authority File. 

Catalogue Entries: The coordinator should examine whether the Main Entry and the required Added Entries, including Cross Reference Entries or  Subject Analytical Entries, and Cross Reference Index Entries or "see" and "see also" entries are made; the Tracing is given correctly and completely; the choice and rendering of the Heading Section in the Main Entry  and  the Added Entries  are correct  and in conformity with the rules in the catalogue code; and the piece of information given in the Main Entry and the Added Entries are in conformity with the rules and are written correctly. Proper care  should be taken to see that spelling mistakes and errors in punctuation are completely avoided. Discrepancies  noted should be corrected then and there. Only after such a detailed  scrutiny should  documents be passed for releasing work.
