Subject Cataloging: Name Headings as Subjects

For Congressional nomination hearings, the names of nominees for Federal offices are included as subject headings. LC's "rule of three" and "rule of four" apply when multiple nominees are the subject of a single hearing. If a hearing involves four or fewer nominees, the name of each nominee is included as a subject heading. If there are more than four nominees, only the first named on the title source is included as a subject heading.
