Spanish Subject Headings

“The Oakland Public Library (OPL) has been assigning Spanish language equivalents to Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) in its Spanish language bibliographic records since the early 1980's. The primary source for these Spanish subjects headings is Bilindex (1984) and its 1986 supplement. When Spanish language equivalents to LCSHs cannot be found in Bilindex, OPL library staff with appropriate language and cataloging expertise create them, following linguistic and structural patterns established by the primary source. This file constitutes all those Spanish subject headings created in-house with their LCSH equivalents.”
