Synopsis

This unique publication provides a thesaurus of all Library of Congress sub-Saharan African subject headings ever published, including classification numbers for most subject headings and cross-references from related or unused versions of a heading. Thus it provides a valuable easy-to-use thesaurus for those doing library research and online searches in African Studies. The volume covers the 41 countries that make up Africa south of the Sahara and the islands of Cape Verde, the Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Reunion, Saint Helena, Sao Tome Principe, and the Seychelles. It consists of some 4,000 subject headings, including the names of over 600 African peoples and nearly 600 African languages. In addition to the cross-references from unused synonyms and references to broader, related, and narrower terms that are found in Library of Congress Subject Headings, Otchere has added hundreds more to help the user more easily locate the desired term.
