Abstract:
Subject headings for works of fiction are one way to increase access to these books. Increased access should result in greater use for these books. Using a multi-branch, metropolitan public library, fiction books with subject headings were compared against fiction books without subject headings for overall use and circulations (use adjusted for time available to circulate). These same two categories were then compared to determine the affect of subject headings with respect to: fiction collection size, genre, and publication date for overall use and circulations.
