The paper describes chronological subject headings used in subject cataloging to express the temporal component of a document. The author explains different methods of representing the deduced time and the position of a chronological subject heading in the complex structure of subject headings and the meaning of the subject string. The use of subdivision elements history and prognosis, and of chronological subject headings in the catalogue of the National and University Library, Zagreb, is described thoroughly with annotated examples for illustration. The paper draws special attention to years, single ones as well as those which are part of chronological subject headings that cover specific periods of time. The author has proposed an outline of historical periods in Croatian history based on the knowledge of Croatian historiography. In conclusion, the author emphasizes the need for consistency in work and the significance of a controlled vocabulary system.
