Record requirements:  The National level record requirement for the meeting name fields is Mandatory if applicable.  For the national level requirements by subfield, and the minimal level record and subfield requirements, see the specific field.

Field repeatability:  See the specific field for its repeatability.

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.

The indicators, subfield codes, and input conventions for the meeting name fields 111, 411, 611, 711, and 811 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.:
