ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze the historical process and characteristics of subject headings related to Korea, China, Japan in the LCSH, from the first edition to 31th ed. The analytic results show that the headings in the 31th edition include in Korea 713, China 1,742, Japan 2,647, compared to Korea headings 4, China headings 49, Japan headings 24 in the first edition. Some subject headings considered important and essential are left out. We can also recognize the some headings are relatively too subdivided. The omitted and insufficient Korean, Chinese, Japanese subject headings are considered to be tied up with library policies of LC. Therefore our active support such as donation are being called for collecting more detailed analysis of Korea, China, Japan-related publications in LC.
