ABSTRACT
Based on the fact that subject indexing in libraries in German-speaking and English-speaking countries is done by different staff groups (specialist library staff or catalogers), the survey is to determine whether there are different attitudes towards subject indexing in general and the automatic subject indexing in particular. The survey results show a very similar attitude in both language areas: the persons questioned are convinced of the benefits of subject indexing and would like to keep it on the current quality level. Automatic subject indexing however is seen with scepticism. This report presents and discusses the survey results.
