    content. Subject specialists index the article by tagging it with controlled vocabulary from a standardized list. e.g. critical care unit is Intensive Care Units

    Organized in a hierarchical structure which

    allows for searching at various levels of specificity. Articles are indexed to the most specific

    subject heading eg. Intensive Care Units, Neonatal
