You can use any controlled vocabulary you wish; be sure to include the
correct code in the "source" attribute to tell where it came from.  For
example:

<subject encodinganalog="650" source="lcsh">Vampires in
literature</subject>
<subject encodinganalog="650" source="mesh">Arnold-Chiari
Malformation</subject>
<subject encodinganalog="650" source="agrovoc">Earias
vittella</subject>

Note that if you're using MARC, the encodinganalog="650" should be
changed to encodinganalog="690" if the term isn't devised according to
one of the accepted thesauri.

You can find a useful list of the most common thesauri along with the
abbreviation for the source attribute here, in the Library of Congress
EAD pages: http://www.loc.gov/ead/tglib1998/tlatt1.html (scroll down to
"SOURCE").

Hi everyone,

 

When indicating subject headings for EAD, should they conform to LCSH
(Anesthesiology-History) or can they be in the MeSH format
(Anesthesiology/history). 

 

Thanks in advance for your help.
