Ambiguous Entities:

Treat the ambiguous entities listed below under the provisions of 24.8, AACR2, tagging them as X11.

Events ( FN 1):

Before August 1996, some fairs, festivals, etc., were established either as name or subject headings, tagged X11 or X50 respectively. After July 1996, establish all such events as name headings, tagged X11. Do not retain the pre-August 1996 heading as a reference, unless it is a valid AACR2 reference. Note that a qualifier of the type specified by 24.4B may be necessary when the name does not convey the idea of a fair, festival, etc.

LC practice: Convert headings for fairs, festivals, etc., existing in the subject authority file to name headings as needed. In converting subject authority records to name authority records, copy the subject authority record into the name authority file. Add the control number of the subject authority record as a 010 $z; revise the form of heading and the tagging; delete any 053 field; evaluate existing references (revise or delete), add additional references as appropriate, delete any 550 fields ( FN 2); retain any 670 field(s) as is (including "Work cat." preceding the citation), add a 670 field that justifies the heading chosen (item being cataloged or LC database citation); and change FFD 8 to value n, code FFD 12 as appropriate, and add the cataloger's code in FFD 25. Submit a proposal to delete the record from the subject authority file to the Subject Headings Editorial Team, Cataloging Policy and Support Office. (NACO libraries: Submit the proposal to Cooperative Cataloging Team, Regional and Cooperative Cataloging Division.)
