Field definition and scope:

Field 111 contains a meeting 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 111 contains the established form of a meeting name.  In a reference record, this field contains an unestablished form of a meeting name.

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

Field 111 is NOT repeatable.

Guidelines for applying content designators:

The content designators identify the subelements occurring in meeting name headings 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 named meeting that is entered under a corporate name is contained in the X10 fields.  Corporate names that include such words as conference or congress are also contained in the X10 fields.  For example, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, a professional group, is a corporate name.
