Description/Abstract

This project facilitates virtual browsing by means of deeplinked catalog searches based on Library of Congress (LC) subject headings and call numbers. Collocating these searches by discipline in pulldown menus opens up the physical book collection in a seamless online fashion to users lacking LC subject heading knowledge, but possessing subject knowledge. Virtual browsing is important because it may aid awareness of and increased use of print collections in large libraries, especially by researchers who rarely visit the library physically.
