Definition

A group category to which the creator(s) of a work or compilation of works, or the contributor(s) to an expression or compilation of expressions, belongs.

If a demographic group is not specified then multiple creator/contributor group categories 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 categories 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).
