Controlled subject access terms that supplement terms contained in data in the MARC record and provide subject access and links to the classification number or number span in field 153 (Classification Number).

These fields contain established subject access terms from the subject heading systems and thesauri identified in the second indicator (Subject heading system/thesaurus) or in subfield ‡2 (Source of heading or term) and Field 754 contains a topical subject constructed from a faceted vocabulary. Field 753 (Index Term-Uncontrolled) contains uncontrolled index terms, which provide additional access terms, references between terms, and vocabulary control.
