The Library of Congress Subject Headings, for all its seeming comprehension, has not always been up to the task of covering Seventh-day Adventist subject matter better than the Supplementary List of Subject Headings published by the Loma Linda University Libraries as used by the Seventh-day Adventist Periodical Index. More important, there has been, and continues to be, a need to coin new terms as they are needed. To rely primarily on one source for assigning index terms, however comprehensive it might seem generally, is too inflexible a strategy to be realistic. Relying on both the LCSH and the SLSH is the preferred method of indexing Seventh-day Adventist periodical articles.
