Proper Nouns as Subject Headings
Subject headings can also be proper nouns, such as the name of a famous person, family, place, or event. These styles of headings are frequently found in the coverage of biographical, historical, or literary materials.
Examples of these styles of headings include:
BEMBE (WEST AFRICAN PEOPLE)
SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM, 1564-1616
ARARAT, MOUNT (TURKEY)
SOUTH AFRICAN WAR, 1899-1902.
Sometimes these headings include date ranges and sometimes they consist only of the proper noun.
