Field definition and scope:

Field 711 contains an added entry in which the entry element is a meeting name.  Added entries are assigned according to various cataloging rules to give access to the bibliographic record from meeting or conference name headings which may not be more appropriately assigned as 611 (Subject Added Entry - Meeting Name) or 811 (Series Added Entry - Meeting Name) fields.

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

Field 711 is repeatable.

Guidelines for applying content designators:

The content designators identify the subelements occurring in meeting name fields 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.

For indicator and subfield code definitions and examples, National-level (NLR) and Minimal-level (MLR) record requirements, and designator repeatability, see table below:
