Field definition and scope:

Field 711 contains a meeting or conference name used as an index term that supplements terms in the MARC 21 record.  The name may be referred to in the classification number and caption in field 153 (Classification Number).

The field may be used to link a classification number with a related controlled meeting or conference name heading.  The values in the second indicator position or the data in subfield $2 (Source of heading or term) identify the subject heading system or thesaurus used by an institution to formulate the meeting name index term.  Terms not controlled by a thesaurus or authority file are contained in field 753 (Index Term - Uncontrolled).

Field 711 is repeatable.

Guidelines for applying content designators:

 Field 711 parallels the 611 Subject Added Entry field in the bibliographic format.  The indicators and subfield codes below were created from the information in field 611.  Examples of field 711 are provided in this section.  Guidelines for the input conventions and the source for the content designators are in MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data:  X11 (Meeting Names - General Information) and 611 (Subject Added Entry - Meeting Name).
