Library Of Congress Subject Headings
The LIBRARY OF CONGRESS SUBJECT HEADINGS (LCSH) comprise a thesaurus (in the information science sense, a controlled vocabulary ) of subject headings , maintained by the United States Library of Congress , for use in bibliographic records. LC Subject Headings are an integral part of bibliographic control , which is the function by which libraries collect, organize and disseminate documents. LCSHs are applied to every item within a library’s collection, and facilitate a user’s access to items in the catalogue that pertain to similar subject matter. If users could only locate items by ‘title’ or other descriptive fields, such as ‘author’ or ‘publisher’, they would have to expend an enormous amount of time searching for items of related subject matter, and undoubtedly miss locating many items because of the ineffective and inefficient search capability

Inter-library Loan
INTERLIBRARY LOAN (abbreviated ILL, and sometimes called INTERLOAN, INTERLENDING, DOCUMENT DELIVERY, or DOCUMENT SUPPLY) is a service whereby a patron of one library can borrow books, DVDs, music, etc. and/or receive photocopies of documents that are owned by another library. The user makes a request with their home library; which, acting as an intermediary, identifies libraries with the desired item, places the request, receives the item, makes it available to the user, as well as arranges for its return. The lending library usually sets a due date and overdue fees of the material borrowed. Although books and journal articles are the most frequently requested items, some libraries will lend audio recordings, video recordings, maps, sheet music, and microforms of all kinds. In some cases, nominal fees accompany the interlibrary loan services

Choice
CHOICE involves decision making . It can include judging the merits of multiple options and selecting one or more of them. One can make a choice between imagined options ("What would I do if...?") or between real options followed by the corresponding action. For example, a traveller might choose a route for a journey based on the preference of arriving at a given destination as soon as possible. The preferred (and therefore chosen) route can then follow from information such as the length of each of the possible routes, traffic conditions, etc. The arrival at a choice can include more complex motivators such as cognition , instinct , and feeling . Simple choices might include what to eat for dinner or what to wear on a Saturday morning – choices that have relatively low-impact on the chooser's life overall. More complex choices might involve (for example) what candidate to vote for in an election, what profession to pursue, a life partner, etc

Library Science
LIBRARY SCIENCE (often termed LIBRARY STUDIES, LIBRARY AND INFORMATION SCIENCE, BIBLIOTHECOGRAPHY, LIBRARY ECONOMY) is an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary field that applies the practices, perspectives, and tools of management , information technology, education, and other areas to libraries ; the collection, organization, preservation , and dissemination of information resources; and the political economy of information. Martin Schrettinger , a Bavarian librarian, coined the discipline within his work (1808-1828) Versuch eines vollständigen Lehrbuchs der Bibliothek-Wissenschaft oder Anleitung zur vollkommenen Geschäftsführung eines Bibliothekars. Rather than classifying information based on nature-oriented elements, as was previously done in his Bavarian library, Schrettinger organized books in alphabetical order
