6. Main recommendations6.2. Indexing levels = Access Levels
  • Decide in different levels of subject cataloguing for different kinds of publications, based on the significance of the resource. Define and publish pragmatic selection criteria.
  • Use two levels for subject indexing:
    • A full level, providing indexing with enhanced access by authoritative subject terms, as well as classification notations;
    • A minimum level, providing for most of the resources at least one controlled subject term and/or classification notations (shortend if necessary).
