Definition

A conference or meeting name used as a local subject added entry. Local 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 698. Conference or meeting names are the names of athletic contests, conferences, exhibitions, expositions, festivals, meetings and scientific expeditions.

If you enter a conference or meeting name indirectly (i.e., under the name of a corporate body), use field 697 (Local Subject Added Entry–Corporate Name) or field 610 (Subject Added Entry–Corporate Name). If in doubt, use field 698.
