- QUOTE: Many bibliographic databases have some form of “controlled vocabulary”, also referred to as “standardized vocabulary” One term is selected as the ‘preferred’ word for describing and searching for words and concepts in citations; these words and concepts are referred to as “subject” terms or “descriptors.” Words selected for controlled vocabularies are decided by specialists in information science and/or academic disciplines related to the terms and concepts. “Keywords” are descriptive words that may be found in the title, subject headings (descriptors), contents note, abstract, or text of a record in an online catalog or bibliographic database. A “keyword search” is also known as free-text searching.

- QUOTE: Free-text search - A search of a bibliographic database in which natural language words and phrases appearing in the text of the documents indexed, or in their bibliographic descriptions, are used as search terms, rather than terms selected from a list of controlled vocabulary (authorized subject headings or descriptors).
