TERMINOLOGY): A SIMPLIFIED LCSH-BASED VOCABULARY
“With the phenomenal growth of electronic resources and the emergence of numerous

methods that can handle a large volume of materials without incurring the same amount
of effort and cost as in the treatment of traditional library materials.”
and this means facets!
