Section 2 of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act requires that the Merced River be classified and administered as "wild", "scenic", or "recreational" river segments, based on the condition of the river corridor at the time of boundary designation. The classification of a river segment indicates the level of development on the shorelines, the level of development in the watershed, and the accessibility by road or trail. "Wild" segments are free of impoundments and generally inaccessible except by trail, with watersheds and/or shorelines essentially primitive and unpolluted; "Scenic" segments are free of impoundments, with watersheds and shorelines largely undeveloped, but accessible in places by roads; and, "Recreational" segments are readily accessible by road or railroad, may have some development along the shorelines, and may have undergone impoundment or diversion in the past. The Merced River is divided into eight segments.

In the GFONT procedure, a segment is a single continuous line that forms part of all of a character or symbol.

One part of a derived search. Each segment consists of initial characters in the first two to four words of the bibliographic information you are using to search (excluding initial articles). Each segment of a derived search is followed by a comma. The types of derived searches have distinctive configurations of segments to allow the system to distinguish them. The types of derived searches are title (3,2,2,1), personal name (4,3,1), corporate name (=4,3,1), name/title (4,4). Example: gon,wi,th,w is a derived title search for Gone with the wind.
