Link to the Library of Congress Classification site for a list of subject terms. "Controlled Language" is a library concept that simply limits the terms that describe a given subject. For quick access do a "keyword search in the catalog, then view the Subject headings attached to the individual item records.

See a Reference Librarian for additional information about subject versus keyword searching.
