Answer

The Library of Congress Subject Headings (the big red books) provides the terminology the library uses to identify a subject. The book version is like a giant thesaurus. It can tell you what terms we use and what terms we don't use, e.g. Mormon Church or Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They are located on a table to the right of the Information Desk. In the online book catalog, subject headings are the blue hot-links below the author and title information. Clicking on one will lead you to every other book assigned to that subject heading. Periodical databases will generally use the same terminology.
