Rotated strings in LCSH subject headings
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
Have you any comments please about the pros or cons of having the rotate string feature turned off?
We are considering doing so because of a complaint from desk staff about a search on
"Philosophy -- History"
ie the history of philosophy
bringing up results also for
"History -- Philosophy"
ie the philosophy of history
but that is just one anomalous case and I'm afraid of throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
