FIELD DEFINITION AND SCOPE

Field 610 may be used by any institution assigning subject headings based on lists and authority files identified in the second indicator position or in subfield $2 (Source of heading or term).

Meeting names that are not entered subordinately to a corporate body are recorded in field 611 (Subject Added Entry-Meeting Name).
