Definition

A personal name used as a subject added entry. Subject added entries are assigned to a bibliographic record to provide access according to established subject cataloging principles and guidelines. Any institution assigning subject headings based on the lists and authority files identified in the 2nd indicator position or in subfield ‡2 may use field 600. Use for the following types of personal names:

  • Names of persons capable of authorship
  • Phrases having the structure of forenames or surnames. Use this type of entry if a phrase characterizes an author and is the only clue to the author's identity.
  • Names of families

If the name is a personal name in a phrase (e.g., Jesus Christ in motion pictures) without dates (i.e., it would not have a subfield ‡d), use field 650 (Subject Added Entry–Topical Term or field 690 Local Subject Added Entry–Topical Term).

1st Indicator

AACR2 prescribes that you not use names of families as main or added entries (field 100, field 700 and field 800). You may, however, use names of families as subject entries (field 600).

Use also for current cataloging of archival collections cataloged according to Describing Archives: A Content Standard .
