FIELD DEFINITION AND SCOPE

Subject added entry in which the entry element is a meeting or conference name.

Subject added entries are assigned to a bibliographic record to provide access according to established subject cataloging principles and guidelines. Field 611 may be used by any institution assigning subject headings based on the lists and authority files identified in the second indicator position or in subfield $2 (Source of heading or term). Subject added entries for meeting or conference names that are entered subordinately to a corporate body are recorded in field 610.
