Appendix B - Subdivisions Used With Names of Persons


Key:
PN Public note
CN Catalogers note
HN History note
--[ ] May subdivide

The Prints and Photographs Division uses this list of subdivisions so that large files under names of persons can be sub-arranged by broad topic. As appropriate, catalogers should double index with more specific headings.

The proper names for people are taken from Library of Congress Name Authority File. When subdivisions listed below are used with such headings, P&P uses the MARC coding of 600 -4 which signifies that the source is not specified. Institutions creating MARC records should check with their networks on how the field should be coded when non-LCSH topical subdivisions are used.

Headings that can be further subdivided geographically include a facet note [country or state]--[city]. For general information on use of subdivisions, see Introduction, Section III.D.
