Definition

A category of persons for which a resource is intended or a category of persons representing the intellectual level for which the content of a resource is considered appropriate.

If a demographic group is not specified then multiple audience characteristics from the same source vocabulary or code list may be recorded in the same field in separate occurrences of subfield ǂa and subfield ǂb. If a demographic group is specified then the characteristics in the field must all come from the same group. Terms from different source vocabularies are recorded in separate occurrences of the field.

For guidance on assigning demographic group terms, see the Library of Congress Demographic Group Terms Manual (http://www.loc.gov/aba/publications/FreeLCDGT/freelcdgt.html).
