Definition

A name access point that has not been formulated according to recognized cataloging instructions. It is used primarily for names programmatically mapped from non-MARC formats such as Dublin Core or ONIX. Names may be of any type (e.g., personal, family, corporate, meeting). Record the parts of names consisting of several parts in whatever order is desired. Repeat field 720 for multiple names.

Do not use field 720 for AACR2 cataloging. Field 720 may be added to bibliographic records with field 040 subfield ǂe rda and field 720 must include subfield ǂ0 or subfield ǂ1.

Use field 720 when a name is mapped from a non-MARC format that does not adequately differentiate among types of name access points, e.g. personal, family, corporate, or meeting. Do not use field 720 for names intended to provide subject access. Use field 653 for names intended to provide subject access. Use field 688 for subject access points in which the type of entry element is unspecified.
