NOTE:  See MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data (100 Main Entry - Personal Name) for code definitions not given below.


Field 100 contains personal names used as main entries.  Words, phrases, initials or symbols used by an author to conceal his identity are considered to be personal names.

The use of personal name main entry for serials is greatly restricted under AACR2 and thus, this field is infrequently used.
