Until a decision is reached by the PCC Policy Committee on the use of relationship designators in authority records, LC/PCC catalogers may continue to use the subfield $w codes "a" (earlier) and "b" (later) or optionally use the appropriate relationship designators from Appendix K to provide relationship links between conference entities.

LC/PCC catalogers may use subfield $i (Relationship information) with subfield $w coded "r" when providing relationship links between corporate entities and 1) the names of other persons, families, or corporate bodies or 2) authorized access points for works or expressions.  This technique may also be used to relate authorized access points for works and expressions containing conference names.  When using a term from Appendix I, J or K in subfield $i, use a capital letter for the first letter of the term and follow the term with a colon.

See LC-PCC PS for guidance on relating authority records for ongoing conferences.


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