Is it too simple to say:

"Would someone seeking information about concept A wish to have their 
attention drawn to resource B?"

If so, it is useful to create a link between the concept and the 
resource, normally called "assigning the indexing term used as a label 
for concept A to resource B".

A resource can be assigned lots of indexing terms - this is not the same 
as saying that any one or more of these terms is "the subject" of the 
resource, or that the resource is allocated to one or more places in a 
classification scheme.
