Subject access refers to find and locate the ‘Aboutness’ of a named entity (person, family, corporate body) or a concept, object, event, and place. Subject access enhancement refers to providing integrated subject access to structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data. This presentation compared known and unknow-term search in Google, library OPAC and Website, and university website; introduced various subject access enhancement techniques applied to a library OPAC that supports unknown-term search through examples; and pointed out challenges in providing an integrated subject access across all resources of an enterprise - university website, library Opac, library website, and other data service points. FocusOn Search and CategoryMap are considered as essential components to enhance subject access for such data. The presentation also suggested how the two new utilities be implemented as plug-in to existing cataloging environment, which allow catalogers to 1) configure web services capable to consume metadata other than MARC format, 2) create and maintain categories conforming to enterprise service bus at local library level, home-institution level, consortium level, bibliographic utility level, and other data service level.
