In the serial specifications, this field was defined originally in 1975 as Non-AACR/ALA Entry-Place of Publication to contain a hierarchical form of geographic access to newspapers. In 1978, the name of the field was changed to Place of Publication Access (Newspapers) to clarify its usage.
In 1983, the field was redefined for use with other forms of material and was validated for the books, maps, and music specifications. The name of the field was changed to Place of Publication/Printing.
In 1984, the field was redefined to include place of production and was validated for the archival and manuscripts control and visual materials specifications. The name of the field was changed to Added Entry-Place of Publication or Production.
In 1986, the current names of the field and subfields were validated to better reflect a more generalized application of the field.
