Content in the Summon index comes from many different sources. Using information from all of the sources, Franklin Articles+ maps Disciplines via the Subject Term and Call Number fields in the overall index. Disciplines are mapped at the individual item-level and items may potentially have one or more Disciplines mapped to them. As new content is indexed in Summon, it is assigned to a Discipline, as long there is an existing Discipline match. Newspaper articles do not have disciplines, nor do many other items of various content types that do not match with a discipline. These disciplines can be use to narrow a results set.
Subject terms in individual records are mapped to disciplines in two ways:
Call numbers for book records are mapped to Disciplines using the Library of Congress Call Number, Dewey Number, or National Library of Medicine (NLM Classification).
