Hi all,

In opac/parts/record/subjects.tt2, there is a line at the top of the file that indicates you're using the 650 MARC field for the subject links:

    subjects = [
            label => l('Subject: '),
xpath => '//*[@tag="600" or @tag="610" or @tag="611" or @tag="630" or @tag="650" or @tag="651"]'

You can add indicators for that xpath if you want to limit the display to specific types of subject headings. For example, this is what's used at NOBLE to limit to LC and subject headings and LC headings for children:

    subjects = [
            label => l('Subject: '),
xpath => '//*[((@tag="600" or @tag="610" or @tag="611" or @tag="630" or @tag="650" or @tag="651") and (@ind2="0" or @ind2="1"))]'

I hope this helps!

Ahem, Jason Boyer? Perhaps you could reveal how you have worked this magic?

    We have been taking them out of our records.  Terry Reese's MarcEdit
    program can generate FAST headings, so if we ever need them for
    anything, we can export our bib records, work some MarcEdit magic on
    them, and re-import them.

    Sarah, I'd be really curious how you were able to hide them from the
    OPAC view, if you'd be willing to share!
