Title: 110 - Heading - Corporate Name (NR)

The Heading - Corporate Name (110 tag) of the MARC 
authority record contains an established form of a 
name heading for the corporate body that can be used 
as a main entry, subject heading, or added entry in 
the bibliographic record. 

Corporate name headings are established by agencies 
that publish them in either print or electronic form. 
Many corporate name authorities are established by the 
Library of Congress. A few corporate names are 
established in Sears List of Subject Headings 
and in the Library of Congress Annotated Card or AC 
headings for children's literature. 

Local libraries may create their own corporate name 
authorities for names not established by the Library 
of Congress, Sears, or LCAC. When headings for 
corporate names are locally established, Chapter 24 of 
the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2) 
should be followed. 

The subfields used in the 110 tag of the authority 
record parallel the subfields used in the 110 tag in 
the bibliographic record. In addition, subfields d, g, 
n, t, f, h, k, l, p, and s allow the authority record 
to include the title of a work associated with the 
corporate name. Subfields v, x, y, and z allow for 
subdivisions used with the name in a subject heading.
