What is a BISAC subject?


Return to what I was doing

The BISAC Subject Headings List is a standard used to categorize books based on content. The Subject Heading applied to a book can determine where the book will be shelved in your store or the categories under which it can be searched for in a database. You may use the following link to the Book Industry Study Group site for a standardized list.

I was delighted with my order and your service. The book arrived in time for the occasion that I needed it for. I was thrilled to be able to find an out-of-print copy.
