    • Field Detail

      • keywords

        public Hashtable keywords
        The keywords are usually (but not limited to) one word long. They are not controlled by any vocabulary.
      • subjectHeadings

        public Hashtable subjectHeadings
        The subject headings usually come from standard lists such as Sears List of Subject Headings, or Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). This specification does not specify what list to use but implementors are advised to provide a controlled vocabulary for the list that is used, and to specify the source of subject headings in subjectHeadingsSource field. The name of such vocabulary should be equal to BibRefSupport.SUBJECT_HEADINGS.
      • subjectHeadingsSource

        public String subjectHeadingsSource
        The source of subject headings. For example:
        for Sears List of Subject Headings
        for Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)
        for MEDLINE Mesh Terms
      • codes

        public Hashtable codes

        Classification code (call number) is usually either Dewey decimal or Congress classification. But this specification does not prescribe it.

        Note that the classification codes are unique (unlike some subject headings). Therefore, they can be even expressed as identifiers using the same notation as used for the citation identifiers.
