Hudjefa is the pseudonym for a 2nd Dynasty pharaoh as reported on the Turin canon, a list of kings written during the reign of Ramses II. Hudjefa is now understood to mean that the name of the king was already missing from the document from which the Turin canon was copied. The length of the reign associated to Hudjefa on the canon is 11 years. Because of the position of Hudjefa on the Turin list, he is sometimes identified with a king Sesochris reported in the Aegyptiaca, a history of Egypt written by the Egyptian priest Manetho in the 3rd century BC. Manetho credits this pharaoh with 48 years of reign. Egyptologists have attempted to relate Hudjefa with archaeologically attested kings of the period, in particular Seth peribsen

An alphabetical subject catalogue is a library catalog, which lists the publications according to descriptor keywords and thus allows selective thematic searches for literature. A subject heading is a natural language expression that reproduces the content of the publication as briefly but precisely as possible. Complex content can be described using a syntactical keyword chain, a combination of several individual subject headings. The sub-keywords are not only used for targeted research, but allow the catalogue user to see whether the related document might be relevant to him. While earlier subject catalogues were kept as an independent card catalog, the search option for subject headings is integrated in modern OPACs.
