37 Conflict and match

38 Reformulation for bibliographic lExtract one heading for each complete indexed field and field combination lIndex type depends on tag lHeading type depends on index type

39 Reformulation for authority lExtract one heading for each complete indexed field lOne copy of each heading for each a in 008/14-16, which determines index type lHeading type depends on index type

40 Characteristics lOne entry for each combination of: Normalized heading Index type Heading type lMatch implies linkage lWhole heading indexed

41 Questions that can be answered lWhich records contain a given heading? lWhich headings have the same stem? lHeadings with no authority records? lAre there duplicate authority records? lDo references conflict with bibliographic headings?

42 Subdivisions are different yet similar lBibliographic: each 6XX $v $x $y $z lAuthority: each 1XX, 4XX, 5XX $v $x $y $z lNo index type (all the same) lHeading type: 2nd indicator lSubdivision type: subfield code lAll of same subdivision collapse into one main table entry

43 Changed heading

44 Subdivision extraction l19TH CENTURY (a, y) lBIOGRAPHY (a, v)

45 Subdivision extraction lECONOMIC ASPECTS (a, x) lZIMBABWE (a, z) lZVIMBA COMMUNAL LAND (a, z) lCHIRAU COMMUNAL LAND (a, z)
