HOW THE SUBJECT LISTING OF UU SERMONS WORKS

    Over 1 billion people now have Internet access.
This means that these people can read your sermons
if they are posted on the Internet
in a way that they can be found by search engines.
Right now the Internet is a chaos of far too much information.
But clarity might be coming.

    Perhaps some search engines will sort files by their
LIBRARY OF CONGRESS SUBJECT HEADINGS.
At least LC subjects will be included as keywords.

    The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world.
And they have developed an elaborate system for cataloging all books.
There are over 200,000 subject headings.
Where needed, these subject headings are subdivided.
And these categories are constantly being updated.

    In presenting my own website to the world,
I have adopted the practice of putting the
LIBRARY OF CONGRESS SUBJECT
as the first word (or words) in the TITLE LINE.
The title line appears at the very top of your screen.
For example, the title of this file is:
CLASSIFICATION, LIBRARY OF CONGRESS.
These words constitute one of the Library of Congress subject categories.

    I hope in the near future that a wise Internet organizer
will see the wisdom of using a system that has already been created
for organizing the chaos of information now available on the Internet.

    Using the Library of Congress Subject classifications
will not solve all of the problems.
There will still be far too many responses to any subject anyone searches.
But it is a beginning.
And perhaps the Library of Congress will take on the task
of developing even more sub-divisions
so that the number of 'hits' can be reduced to a manageable number.

    The alphabetical list above
of Library of Congress Subject Headings
has been selected for classifying UU sermons.
(There are now about 200 subjects on the list,
which is less than one out of a thousand LC subjects.)

When sermons do not fit any of these areas, 
new Subject Headings used by the Library of Congress
can be added to this list any time.

    The Library of Congress publishes its classification system
in four huge volumes you might have seen at the library.
But luckily, you can also find out whether a certain word or phrase
is a Library of Congress subject category from your home computer.
Your key to this information is the following line of code:
http://catalog.loc.gov/
(Put that URL into your bookmarks;
and you will always be able to determine
what is and what is not a Library of Congress subject.)

When you go to the above URL,
choose subject search,
and type the word or phrase in the box provided.
If it is an LC classification, you will be led to a list of books on that subject.
If it is not, there may be suggestions for finding words that are LC subjects.
And there will also be useful subdivisions
for subjects that have thousands of books.

    {The Library of Congress separates subdivisions with a double dash--.
When a subject needs clarification, there is a comma or a parenthesis.
Be sure to follow the precise punctuation.
Otherwise the computers get confused.}

    Sermons on the Internet
that have already been registered (including their classifications)
with the Cyber-Sermon Registry
are linked from the Library of Congress Subject Headings listed above.
(One sermon can be listed under more than one subject
and each Subject Heading may have several sermons.
Subjects appearing in larger font have several sermons linked.

    When you have selected the best Subject Heading for your sermon, 
put that subject into the title line of its URL
and send the sermon title and its URL to the webmaster.

    If you wish, your whole list of sermons on the Internet
can be linked from the Geographical Listing.
