GUIDELINES FOR APPLYING CONTENT DESIGNATORS

Content designators identify the subelements occurring in meeting name headings constructed according to generally accepted cataloging and thesaurus-building rules (e.g, Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2), Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)). A named meeting that is entered under a corporate name is contained in the X10 fields. Corporate names that include such words as conference or congress are also contained in the X10 fields. For example, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, a professional group, is a corporate name.

Only generally-applicable content designators are described in full in this section. A small number of content designators with field-specific instructions are described in the Tracings and References--General Information section (for field 411 and 511) and the 7XX Heading Linking Entries--General Information section (for field 711).

INPUT CONVENTIONS

Ambiguous Headings - See Appendix D: Ambiguous Headings.

Punctuation - Punctuation of the subelements of a heading is generally dictated by descriptive cataloging or subject heading system/thesaurus rules.
