DCM Z1:  370  Associated Place

General:

For jurisdictions or other place names with authority records in the LC/NAF, use the authorized access point form as found, recording the source in subfield $2.  The form of place name in 370 may differ from the form of place name added to a preferred name of place or an access point per RDA and LC-PCC PS instructions.

Examples:

Geographic name in LC/NAF:

151  ##  $a Washington (State)

[Authorized access point for the place includes type of jurisdiction.]

Authorized access point recorded in 370:

370  ##  $e Washington (State) $2 naf

Form of name as an addition in an access point:

110  2#  $a Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (Wash.)

[Abbreviation for the place per RDA B.11.]

Form of name as part of preferred name of a local place:

151  ##  $a Seattle (Wash.)

[Abbreviation for the larger place per RDA B.11.]

Geographic name in LC/NAF:

[Authorized access point for the place includes another designation.]

If no authorized access point exists in the LC/NACO Authority File for the jurisdiction, it is not necessary to create a NAR in order to code the 370 field.  Use the RDA preferred name for the place, but note that when there is no authorized source, a subfield $2 cannot be added.  For non-jurisdictions prefer names from an authorized vocabulary such as LCSH and identify the source in subfield $2.  If the name is not found in an authorized vocabulary, record it in field 370 without giving a subfield $2 (it is not necessary for SACO participants to submit a subject heading proposal).

When determining when to create a name authority record for a geographic name, consult the Name Authority Records (NARs) section of DCM Z1 Introduction.

Repeatability:

In choosing between repeating a field vs. repeating a subfield:  If the only addition to an existing field is an additional term from the same vocabulary, repeat the affected subfield.  If the vocabulary source differs, or if another associated element differs (such as a range of dates), repeat the field.  Overall best practice:  repeat the field when needed for clarity.

Subfield $s - Start period and Subfield $t - End period:

Follow the LC/PCC practice for subfield $s and subfield $t provided in the 373 field (DCM Z1).

Subfield $u - Uniform Resource Identifier and Subfield $v - Source of information:

Follow the LC/PCC practice for subfield $u and subfield $v provided in the 046 field (DCM Z1).

SARs:

LC series practice:  As of June 1, 2006, LC does not create or update SARs.

Practice for Series Authorities:

Record the place of origin of the work in field 370, unless it is merely a place of publication or other place associated with a manifestation (use field 643, when appropriate, for the latter).  Although the "place of origin" of a serial work may be the same as the place of publication of the component part for which the SAR (or serial bibliographic record) was created, use judgment in distinguishing between place of origin of the work and a place of publication not actually related to the work itself.
