Field definition and scope:

Field 711 contains a meeting name that is equivalent to the name contained in the 111 field of the same record.  It links headings within a system or from different thesauri or authority files.

The National level record requirement for this field is Optional.

Field 711 is 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.

Content designator history:

Subfield $b - Number  [obsolete]:  In 1980, the definition of subfield $n was expanded to include meeting numbers and subfield $b was made obsolete.  Records created before this change may contain the number of the meeting in subfield $b.

Subfield $c - Location of meeting  [changed, 2014]:  In 2014, subfield $c was made repeatable.

Subfield $g - Miscellaneous information  [changed, 2014]:  In 2014, subfield $g was made repeatable.

Subfield $i - Relationship information  [new, 2014]

Subfield $j - Relator term  [new, 2006]

Subfields  $u - Record control number  [obsolete, 1997]  [USMARC only]

$v - Record control number  [redefined, 1995]  [USMARC only]

$0 - Record control number  [new, 1997]

$0 - Record control number  [redefined, 2010]

$v - Form subdivision  [redefined, 1995]  [USMARC only]

$3 - Authority record control number  [obsolete, 1997]  [CAN/MARC only]

In USMARC, from 1993 to 1995, subfield $v was defined as Record control number in the 7XX Heading Linking Entry fields.  When subfield $v was adapted for form subdivisions in MARC bibliographic and authority heading fields in 1995, subfield $v was redefined as Form subdivision and subfield $u was defined as Record control number.  In 1997, subfield $0 was added as Record control number in 5XX and 7XX fields and $u was made obsolete.

Subfield $w/1 - Replacement complexity  [new, 2002]:  In 2002, subfield $w/1 was defined with the following codes:  a (Heading replacement does not require review); b (Heading replacement requires review); and n (Not applicable).

Subfield $4 - Relationship code  [new, 2014]

Subfield $4 - Relationship code  [renamed, 2017] [redescribed, 2017]:  Subfield $4 was renamed to Relationship and redescribed to allow for the recording of relationship URIs in addition to MARC and non-MARC codes.
