Library of Congress Subject Headings offer a controlled vocabulary that simplifies searching the Library of Congress Online Catalog—and many other library catalogs. Additional works in the Library of Congress on coffee and coffee culture may be identified by searching the online catalog under appropriate Library of Congress subject headings.

Choose the topics you wish to search from the following list of subjects to link directly to the catalog and automatically execute a search that will allow you to browse related subject headings.
