Appendix D - Subdivisions Used With Corporate Bodies and Named Events


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 corporate bodies and named events can be sub-arranged by broad topic. As appropriate, catalogers should double index with more specific headings.

The proper names for corporate bodies and named events are taken from the Library of Congress Name Authority File and Library of Congress Subject Headings. The term "corporate bodies" includes organizations and institutions, commercial enterprises, military services, legislative bodies, educational and medical institutions. Named events include conferences and exhibitions. When subdivisions listed below are used with such headings, P&P uses the MARC coding of 61x -24 or 61x -14. 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 the use of subdivisions, see Introduction, Section III.D.
