    2. it helps the patron find all of the information on a particular topic.

    3. different words may be spelled in different ways.

  3. If a cataloger chooses to use more than three subject headings

    2. too many search terms will be used in the computer.

    3. this may be because of the needs of the patrons of that library.

    4. the cataloger should not be allowed to catalog any more items.
