The paper will briefly present the latest 2.0 version of the Polythematic Structured Subject Heading System (PSH, which has been created at the State Technical Library in Prague (as a revised upgrade of the previous 1.4 version) and is prepared for release in 2006.

The subject heading system is used in many Czech libraries for the purpose of subject cataloguing of various documents, especially classic printed books whose electronic records are then made available in online library catalogs. The system may also be used as a tool for subject cataloguing of electronic information resources and, subsequently, for their user friendly graphic display.

Therefore, the key part of this paper consists of two case studies. One of them will present the use of the subject heading system in the STM Portal (, produced by the State Technical Library), the other will deal with its use in the ESO Portal (Electronic Study Aids,, produced by the Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague).

We will also describe ways in which users may work with the subject heading system in different user environments (interfaces) available online via the Internet. The importance of the system’s tree structure for browsing (i. e. the navigation among electronic information resources which is complementary to searching as another way to locate requested documents) will also be underlined.
