Field repeatability:  See the specific field for its repeatability.

Guidelines for applying content designators:

The defined content designators identify the subelements occurring in corporate 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 corporate name, a form subheading, a title of a work, 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 field 651 (Subject Added Entry - Geographic Name).

For non-subject purposes, other names used alone are contained in 110 and 710 fields.

A named meeting that is entered under a corporate name is contained in the X10 fields.

A meeting entered directly under its own name is contained in the X11 fields.

Corporate names used in phrase subject headings (e.g., Catholic Church in art) are contained in field 650 (Subject Added Entry - Topical Term).

The indicators, subfield codes, and input conventions for the corporate name fields 110, 410, 610, 710, and 810 follow similar patterns.  Guidelines for applying the first indicator and subfield codes are below.  Subfields are grouped by type of entry.  See the specific field for the second indicator information.

For indicator and subfield code definitions and examples, National-level (NLR) and Minimal-level (MLR) record requirements, and designator repeatability, see table below.  An asterisk ( * ) in the column indicates that the requirement varies.  See table in the specific field.:

Content designator history:

Second indicator - Main entry/subject relationship  [110]  (BK MU SE)  [obsolete]:  The use of the second indicator in field 110 to indicate the main entry/subject relationship was made obsolete in 1990.  The values were:  0 (Main entry/subject relationship irrelevant) and 1 (Main entry is subject).

Second indicator - Type of added entry  [710]

Values  0 - Alternative entry  (BK AM CF MP MU SE)  [obsolete]

1 - Secondary entry  (BK AM CF MP MU SE)  [obsolete]

1 - Printed on card  (VM)  [obsolete]

3 - Not printed on card  (VM)  [obsolete]

In 1993, second indicator values 0 (Alternative entry) and 1 (Secondary entry) were made obsolete in the books, archival and manuscripts control, computer files, maps, music, and serials specifications.  Values 1 (Printed on card) and 3 (Not printed on card) were made obsolete in the visual materials specifications.

Subfields  $c - Location of meeting  [new]

$d - Date of meeting or treaty signing  [new]

The location and date of a meeting and the date of signing of a treaty entered under a corporate body or jurisdiction were not separately subfield coded but included in subfield $p prior to the definition of subfields $c and $d in 1980.

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  [710]  [new, 2009]

Subfield $k - Form subheading:  Prior to 1981, the title "Treaties, etc." was considered a form subheading and coded in subfield $k.

Subfields  $n - Number of part/section/meeting  [new]

$p - Name of part/section of a work  [redefined]

In 1979, subfield $n was defined for numbered parts/sections and subfield $p (Part) was redefined to include only named parts/sections.  Prior to that change, both the number and the name of a part were contained in one $p subfield.

In 1980, the definition of subfield $n was expanded to include meeting numbers.  Prior to this change, the number of a meeting entered under a corporate body was not separately subfield coded.

Subfield $w - Bibliographic record control number  [810]  [new, 2007]

Subfield $x - International Standard Serial Number  [810]  [new, 2008]

Subfield $0 - Authority record control number  [new, 2007]

Subfield $3 - Materials specified  [810]  [new, 2008]

Subfield $4 - Relator 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.

Subfield $5 - Institution to which field applies  [810]  [new, 2010]

Subfield $7 - Control subfield  [810]  [new, 2013]
