The Institute of Information Science (Institut informacijskih znanosti, IZUM), Maribor, and six Specialised Information Centres operating within the University of Ljubljana, and the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts participate in the project described in this article. The objective of the above mentioned project, which started in March 2000, is to prepare a uniform subject headings list for the COBISS.SI system. Preparation of the COBISS.SI Slovenian General List of Subject Headings (Splošni geslovnik COBISS.SI) in the Slovenian as well as in the English language and its inclusion in the shared cataloguing system will gradually make it possible to ensure greater uniformity of the content handling. The course of the project is described, including: the search for the most suitable solution, the decision that the COBISS.SI Slovenian General List of Subject Headings be based on the Sears List of Subject Headings (Sears), the preparation of suitable methodology and instructions for translating of Sears, the preparation of tools assisting the translation and redaction of Sears, and the translation and redaction of Sears. Further plans and, in particular, plans for faceting of Sears are described. The following phases for the preparation of the COBISS.SI Slovenian General List of Subject Headings have been planned: 1) translation and redaction of Sears (current phase); 2) re-structuring and adaptation of Sears and conversion into the COMARC/A format; 3) supplementing of the COBISS.SI Slovenian General List of Subject Headings with new expressions and the preparation of the instructions for its use; and 4) inclusion in the automated authority control for subject headings in the COBISS.SI system. For each of the above mentioned phases, the preparation of suitable methodology is planned, which is mainly the responsibility of IZUM. For decision-making in connection with the preparation of the COBISS.SI Slovenian General List of Subject Headings, the following is of utmost importance: recommendations and principles for the content handling of electronic resources in metadata records of the Subcommittee on Subject Analysis and Metadata, the roles of the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), of the FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) Project and of the MACS (Multilingual Access to Subjects).
