NOTE:  See MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data (752 Added Entry - Hierarchical Place Name) for code definitions not given below.


Field 752 contains the hierarchy of geographic entries representing place of publication.  This field is used only in records for newspapers and rare serials.  The 752 field can be used to generate machine-ordered lists of catalog records, arranged by place name, and some catalog systems index the field.  The current AACR2 form of the place name is recorded, including the country name and subordinate units (subfields $a through $d).

130 0# Financial times (London, England)

245 04 The financial times.

260 ## London [England] : $b MacRae, Murtice, & Co., $c 1888-

651 #0 London (England) $v Newspapers.

752 ## Great Britain $b England $d London.

This field is established as a core element for newspaper records although only subfields $a and $d are considered mandatory (CEG B6.4.2; CCM 33.14).  When a newspaper changes its place of publication an additional 752 field is input for the new place name.

Under earlier practice field 752 was used for a newspaper's area of coverage, if it differed from the place of publication.  The 651 field is currently used for a newspaper's area of coverage.  The 752 field was also used to record unauthorized, and earlier forms of place names.  This information can be recorded in reference in authority records.


$b  First-order political jurisdiction.

For U.S. titles, record the currently established form of the state name in subfield $b.  For parts of Great Britain, record the appropriate name in subfield $b (e.g., England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales).  Record the province or territory in subfield $b for Australia, Canada, Malaysia, and Yugoslavia.

245 04 The Sydney morning herald $h [microform].

260 ## Sydney, N.S.W. : $b John Fairfax & Sons

651 #0 Sydney (N.S.W.) $v Newspapers.

752 ## Australia $b New South Wales $d Sydney.

$c  Intermediate political jurisdiction.

If a U.S. city is divided between two counties, enter one 752 field with subfield $c representing the geographically or historically dominant county.  If a city is currently divided among three or more counties, omit subfield $c.  If a place of publication is not located within a county or has no political ties to the county in which it lies, do not enter subfield $c.  See CCM 33.14.2 for examples and more detailed instructions.

$d  City.

Use the current authorized form of the city, town, or village.  Use the city name if the newspaper is published in a section of the city.  (City sections, or neighborhoods can be included in a place name subject heading.)
