THE METADATA SERIES: DEPOL – Subject

I really like the way that subject was handled for this repository. The drop down menu greatly expedited the pollution of the subject fields compared to the fine-grained, but often overwhelming Library of Congress Subject headings.

I wonder if this could be applied to large repositories to aid the work of paraprofessionals.

On a side note, looking at the subject heading made me slightly envious of DePol’s travels!
