Field definition and scope:

Field 110 contains a corporate name used in a name or name/title heading in an established heading record or in a traced or an untraced reference record.  In an established heading record, field 110 contains the established form of a corporate name.  In a reference record, this field contains an unestablished form of a corporate name.

The National level record requirement for this field is Mandatory if applicable.

Field 110 is NOT repeatable.

Guidelines for applying content designators:

The content designators identify the subelements occurring in a name or name/title heading that contains a corporate name constructed according to the generally accepted cataloging and thesaurus-building rules [e.g., Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR 2), Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)].

A corporate name, a form subheading, a title of an item or a series, and/or a city section name entered under the name of a jurisdiction are X10 corporate names.

A name of a jurisdiction that represents an ecclesiastical entity is an X10 corporate name.

For subject purposes, other names of jurisdictions used alone or followed by subject subdivisions are geographic names and are contained in the X51 fields.

For non-subject purposes, other names used alone are contained in the X10 fields.

A named meeting that is entered directly under a corporate name is contained in the X11 fields.

Corporate names used in phrase subject headings (e.g., Catholic Church in art) are contained in the X50 fields.
