This paper discusses goals, methods and benefits of the conceptual mapping approach conducted within the CrissCross project, where topical headings of the German subject headings authority file Schlagwortnormdatei (SWD) are being mapped to notations of the Dewey Decimal Classification. Project-specific retrieval concepts for improving thematic access in heterogeneous information spaces are outlined and explained on the basis of significant examples.
