FIELD DEFINITION AND SCOPE

General subdivision term that is equivalent to the 150 topical term or 180 general subdivision field of the same record. It links headings within a system or from different thesauri or authority files.


GUIDELINES FOR APPLYING CONTENT DESIGNATORS

Most of the content designators defined for field 780 are the same as those defined for field 180 (Heading-General Subdivision), field 480 (See From Tracing-General Subdivision), and field 580 (See Also From Tracing-General Subdivision). Description, guidelines, and input conventions for shared content designators are given in the X80 General Subdivisions-General Information section.

Guidelines for applying the second indicator, subfield $w (Control subfield), $2 (Source of heading or term), subfield $i (Relationship information), and subfield $4 (Relationship code) in field 780 are given in the 7XX Heading Linking Entries-General Information section.
