Where in Tiny Cat can I had LC subject headings to the record? The Marc record in Tiny Cat doesn't display them, but I can search World Cat (or the verso of the title page) for them. I'm new to Tiny Cat and am just feeling my way around them

LibraryThing (where all of your actual cataloging and editing of records will happen) does have a "Subject" (LCSH or Library of Congress Subject Headings) field, but it is not editable by members. It can only bring in data from the library source/s you're using to copy-catalog your materials (and unfortunately we don't work with WorldCat).

That said, you can add your own subjects in the "Tags" field. You can add as many tags as you want to your records in LibraryThing (and have them show up in your TinyCat for searching/display purposes), separated by commas.

See https://wiki.librarything.com/index.php/Tagging for more info, I hope this helps.
