GUIDELINES FOR APPLYING CONTENT DESIGNATORS

Subelements occurring in meeting name fields constructed according to the generally accepted cataloging and thesaurus-building rules (e.g., Anglo-American Cataloging Rules (AACR 2), Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)). A named meeting that is entered under a corporate name is contained in the X10 fields. Corporate names that include such words as conference or congress are also contained in the X10 fields. For example, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, a professional group, is a corporate name.

Guidelines for applying all content designators except the second indicator position are given in this section. A field-specific list of content designators and guidelines for applying the second indicator position are provided under the description for each specific X11 field.

If the final subfields are subfield $0, $2, $3, $4, or $5, the mark of punctuation or closing parenthesis precedes those subfields.
