Title: 111 - Heading - Meeting Name (NR)

The Heading - Meeting Name (111 tag) of the MARC 
authority record contains an established form of a 
name heading for a conference, expedition, or other 
type of event that can be used as a main entry, 
subject heading, or added entry in the bibliographic 
record. Many meeting name authority headings are 
established by the Library of Congress. 

Local libraries may create their own meeting name 
authorities for names not established by the Library 
of Congress. When headings for meeting names are 
locally established, Chapter 24 of the 
Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2) should 
be followed. Rule 24.7 covers constructing names for 
conferences, congresses, meetings, etc. Rule 24.8 
covers names for exhibitions, fairs, festivals, etc.

The subfields used in the 111 tag of the authority 
record parallel the subfields used in the 111 tag in 
the bibliographic record. In addition, subfields n and 
t are used for name title headings. Subfields v, x, y, 
and z allow for subdivisions used with the name in a 
subject heading.
