Subject Searching

This brings us to our second type of searching.

Many databases allow you to search using standardized words or phrases chosen by experts in the field. These subject headings or descriptors describe the main topics of each article or book. 

A subject search reads only the subject field of a record, so you will get more precise search results. Subject searching is a strength of library databases that search engines like Google don't have.
